First, if you just wanna know what this is Google image it. Now, i'm 15 and i found out i had pilonidal cyst so i went to tha hospital and had it cleaned. But, they told me i need to remove it and i've heard that after removing it it's painfull because it takes about 1-2 months to heal plus, i also have school and probably i'll have it removed in CHRISTMAS. I wanna ask, Is it really that bad? Cause right now just from the images i saw on Google i just wanna go to my bed and start crying until i can't physically cry any more.
It's sac of pus or other fluid, your body trying to get rid of something that shouldn't be there... like a hair or bacteria. They will numb the area and remove it. If you google it you will find WORST CASE SCENARIOS. Christmas is probably the best time to get it removed because it's winter time and you don't have to do anything really strenuous.
