Had surgery yesterday. On my ass. There's now 6 inches worth of stitches. In my ass. Percocets galore but in tender/sore still.
Pilonidal cyst, or apparently "You're a 20s/30s white male that sits a lot for work? Congratulations, you've won a 3.5 week headache to treat this common affliction!". Apparently the lead affected demographic is truck drivers, with IT workers (me) being second.
Awyeah. Had a friend with one of those once. He said it ruptured at work and the smell was ungodly.
Never had a smell issue. i was actually misdiagnosed by a shitty doctor up in breck since November. He told me the recurring staph infections I was getting every 2 or so months was MRSA and I just had to deal with it until it went away. Came back last week, went to a new dr here and within 45 seconds she correctly diagnosed it. She also said Ishould never have waited this long for surgery and that this last time I was actually at a moderate risk of going septic from it.
So that's been my fun last week and a half.
Also, SwiftKey keyboard fucking hates this forum and keeps adding in duplicate letters on my posts for no reason at all.
