I've had this condition since October and had surgery with stitches in April. I've had 2 infections since the surgery and finally when it appeared to be healing and forming a scar there's now pus coming from the scar. I've made another outpatients appointment for tomorrow but I'm at a loss as to when I'll be normal again. I can't work, go out, wear normal clothes, sit etc.I've also put on weight and can't work out. I have no quality of life and no one seems to be able to tell me when I will be better or how this problem can be solved

    Did you have the full cyst removed? The one under the skin. And what type of closure was it. I am having a plastic surgeon close mine after the genera surgeon cuts it out.

    Did you try going to another doctor? I don't know where you live but people here seem to be taking it calmly, we have 1 surgery then we're totally fine. That must be cause they aren't removing the syringes completely so it somehow regenerates.

    Make sure to wash the area in cases it grows with hot water, avoid sitting too much, better lay down on your stomach and never touch it with your bare hands, ever.
