  • I had a pilonidal cystectomy in August 2019. The specialist stitched the wound up for 10 days, then removed the stitches and applied a liquid glue to keep the area closed. About a month later, the wound reopened and began oozing. The specialist told me this was a possibility and to just clean it daily. At what point should I go back to see the specialist? I feel like oozing isn't normal. When I clean it, obvious small scabs come off and I feel like I'm doing more damage. Also, it's been MONTHS! How long do these things take to heal. Everything I've read and been told is 3 months total healing time, but I still have a gaping wound. HELP

  • Not a question but I just wanted to tell you that I really appreciate your videos because my mom and my dad are both researchers and my dad inspired me to look into the medical field but your videos really helped me to encourage me to be a doctor and all these medical terms and diseases really make me more interested in being a doctor. So thank you!
