Hidradenitis and Upcoming Surgery



Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Anyone have hidradenitis? I haven't had a flare up in a while but of course with my surgery one week away, I just started getting a large boil in my groin area that is leaking puss.:angry: Will this impact my surgery date next week? I have been constantly washing with hibiclens so I'm hoping it will subside by next Tuesday. I worked so hard to get here, I would hate to have my surgery delayed because of this. Any feedback to speed up healing or on the surgery would be helpful.

Thanks!

Pretty sure it won’t delay your surgery. As long you met whatever requirements set by insurance and dr. You should be fine. Trying taking a bleach bath...(small cup of bleach in your bath water.) it’ll disinfect your wound & dry it out. (Similar process of getting into a pool)
