The surgeon my husband saw today won’t do his surgery. He has a pilodinal cyst that basically needs to be cut out. The area that needs to be removed is probably as big as a small nerf football or slightly larger. And it needs to heal from the inside out.
Recovery time is 6 months to a YEAR!! And in that it’s probably at least 4 months until he will be able to sit and drive.
Ugh…him stuck in this house for that long is not anything that I want to deal with in this lifetime. I’ve dealt with him enough after surgery. He’s had at least 2 in the past 10 years. Not fun at all. He’s not a good patient. You’d think he’d be used to it by now. Ok, that’s not funny.
Reasons for no surgery…risk of bleeding and infection. He’s on blood thinners, he will have a large, open wound. You do the math.
I’m relieved, yet I know he needs the surgery. I’m sure he’ll have it eventually…now is just not the time.
