I had a pilonidal cyst cut and drained the other day. I have to renew the gauze in it everyday until it's healed.

It's EXTREMELY painful.

For me, the most painful part is putting new gauze in, rather than taking old gauze out.

Please, what is the most pain-free way to do this?

I already got prescribed Tylenol 4. Probably shouldn't drink while using it.

Okay then this

>>16928943
Nigger how am I supposed to get morphine? I'm just lucky to have gotten. Tylenol 4, usually people just get Tylenol 3.

I don't have personal experience with cysts but my suggestion for getting gauze in a small space is to fold or twist it up tight, insert it while holding the incision open as wide as possible without hurting it, and then allowing it to unfurl itself while inside.

Do you think that's possible and/or would work?
>>
>>16928953
It probably could work better. Since it's on my ass I need someone else to do it though.

They had just been pushing it in with a qtip.
>>
FUCK
I'm getting the exact same procedure as you did. If it's so painful you need Tylenol 4 then I'm scared as fuck.

First time I've heard of "Tylenol 4". They don't prescribe Norco where you're from? Codeine is the crappiest opiate.
>>
>>16928934
As an IV heroin addict, I am laughing my fucking ass off right now.

Tylenol 4? Oh, God, my sides hurt from this laughter.

Switch to alcohol, or man up.

OP, you're not talking to the nurse / doctor, why? Are you on bad terms with them or something? I'm not even being facetious, why is Anonymous a better healthcare provider than the one who cut you open?

Hell, if it's that bad, go to an Emergency or Urgent Care facility.
>>
>>16928919
Get the area really cold and quickly stuff that sucker in. Or just toughen up, bite on a carrot and shove it in.

>pilonidal cyst
How fat are you, Anon? You can tell us.

I had one of these removed last year, and my dad had one removed a few years back. His was like yours; left open to weep with gauze packed in there. Mine was small enough that they closed the wound once they removed it.

Honestly dude? It's painful as fuck but just bite down on a chunk of wood and deal with it. That's all you can really do.
>>
Duh, call the doctor who removed the cyst and get an rx for Percocet or OxyContin
>>
>>16929649
Getting drunk to tend your wounds sounds like a very bad idea.
>>
Wow Anony great job.

Smoke some herb, meng. Works for my nerve damage.

I had one of these.
It was pretty painful.
Just take 800 mg of ibuprofen every 12 hours.
It starts to stop hurting after about 3 days.
Just chill out and find a comfortable spot to watch netflix.
