is it abscessed? is it recurring? what kind of surgery did he say he was going to do? depending on what kind of problems you're having, this is often something that can be taken care of in the office with local anesthesia. usually, surgery under general anesthesia isn't done unless it's a recurring problem causing recurring infections.
it's called a pilonidal cyst, and they're usually composed of hair (ingrown), dead skin cells and such. alone, they aren't really much of a concern, but they have a tendency to get abscessed, which is serious.
yeah, if it is impinging on a nerve it's going to be major surgery under general anesthesia, and that's going to be ... a pain in the butt.oh it's recurring alright!! every other day recurring...does not really hurt bad just annoying if you can foresee the left out details.I am sure you know what it does.
It's causing my back to hurt now and wrapped itself onto a nerve I think
