pilonidal cysts

Posted by LoLo [6.1840] on March 05, 2005 at 01:51:21:

I have been plauged by pilonidal cysts for the past 3 years now and after just getting home from the hospital at midnight tonight from having the second cysts in 2 weeks drained i decided to finally look up some information on it, seeing how i have recently been told that i have the worst case the dr had ever seen and advised to have surgery on at least 2 of them. i have read through the archives and now i am totally freeked out! a little history so you understand that i have been tortured by theese cysts and have just recently been able to get a dr to give me any sort of info on what or how they are caused. anyways i am 23 years old and developed my first cyst during my first trimester of pregnancy laet of 2000. no need to be shy it was right on the lip of my vagina...excrutiating! thank god that one has never returned(knock on wood) after that i started getting what i am now told sabecues(?) cysts on my inner thighs, some i have been able to drain myself and others i have done by the dr's. they are still a continuing problem and it always seems like there are at lesast one or two flared up but they don't usually hurt unless they get to full of pus. after my son was born i developed what is the pilonidal cyst near my tail bone, that one has been drained and packed 4 times in the past 2 years. the worst one recently has me the most concerned and is the one that the dr wants to do the surgery on, about 4 months ago i started noticing discomfort when i wiped after using the restroom, i didn't thing much of it untill one morning i woke up ant there was a huge bump on the inside of me right next to my rectum, after a few days of excrutiating pain, i broke down and went back to the local e.r. as i do not have a family dr for myself. this was by far the worst,most painful cyst i had ever had drained, it has since been drained twice. i was told it is not a pilonidal but can't quite remember the name of it but i know that it also starts with a P. the dr tonight said that it would be nothing but problems for me and could lead to a really bad infection and make me really sick. so the thing is, i have a 2 year old, a 15 year old and a job that i really really love, i don't know that surgery would be something that i could do right now, however i can't stand to keep having theese cursed things sliced open again and agian, it takes such a toll on my mentally and physically. anymore the dr's have to give me a shot of morphin because as soon as they tell me they are going to cut me i start crying like a baby because i know all to well the pain. please, please, please any advice from anyone would be greatly apprieciatted. thank you, LoLo

Hi, LoLo.

You really need an accurate diagnosis. It sounds to me like you have 3 distinct diagnoses:

First, I have never seen (or heard of) a pilonidal cyst of the lip of the vagina!

Next, you already have a history of sebaceous cysts in the area.

Third, the abscess beside your anus was probably a perianal abscess (which is related to an undiagnosed or untreated fissure in ano--most times).

The tailbone problems probably are pilonidal in nature,

If I were you, I would be using lots of hot compresses for any of these since they will help a lot (See the archives for the protocol.) Next, I would be learning how to use the EFAs described in the sebaceous cyst archives since all of these diagnoses (except for the perianal abscess) are related to the same sebaceous process.

Finally, you really need an accurate diagnosis from the doc on the spot who cares enough to sort this out.

Let us know how you do and what you learn.

Walt
