Pilonidal Cyst

Hi,
My son is 17yrs old and has been dealing w/a pilonidal cyst for about 10 months now. When it first showed up it was so painful that we rushed him to the doctor not having any idea what it was. The doctor said it was a pilonidal cyst and lanced it on the spot. Dr. said to keep area clean until it heals and if it comes back we would have to see a surgeon. It came back about a month later, we saw a surgeon who removed the entire abscess and all the channels and closed the wound. He said it would most likely not come back. While the cyst didn't come back the wound never healed and my son had to go back for a second surgery 5mnths later to clean out the area and this time the wound was left open w/packing changed a couple of times a day. The would closed and seemed healed in about a month. Now two holes have opened at the top and bottom of the wound area which are bleeding a little. This didn't surprise me that much b/c my son is very active w/basketball. We took him back to the surgeon just to check it out and was told he need another surgery to clean out the entire wound and this time to use a vaccuum contraption attached to it 24/7 for a couple of weeks to promote complete healing. Needless to say we don't want to go thru this again and are looking for another path..... It doesn't seem like the cyst is back, i.e there is no real pain only minor discomfort when he sits the wrong way(I think that has always been there) and no apparent infection or puss coming out of the holes. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Ken (sorry so long, wanted to give whole story)

Hey Ken,

Please give your son Berberis Vulgaris 1X, 2 pellets, 3 times a day, for 1 week.

This will hopefully stop the bleeding.

Many prayers for your son's speedy recovery.

Regards
Nawaz

Nawaz,

Thanks for getting back to me.

While we want to stop the bleeding, thats not really the biggest issue. Its not really bleeding that much.

The issue is that area as opened again. Two holes have developed at either end of the scar from the operation that he had 3 months ago. The holes are about the diameter of a pencil eraser and about a half inch deep. The doctor says that the tissue that formed after the surgery isn't healthy enough to stay closed so he wants to do another surgery. Thats what we're trying to avoid. Is there anything that can help the healing? Again, there is no puss and no infection so we don't believe the cyst is back.

Thanks again
ken

I understand your concerns and the current situation. But, based upon the information you have provided, Berberis Vulgaris is the correct remedy. The remedy not only controls the bleeding, but, helps in the healing process with other benefits.

Down the road, we will be needing more remedies. As you know, surgery is not the answer, it will reappear with more problems and above all there is no quick fix. So, you guys must show some respect to the disease. Cyst is back and bleeding, but, not much.

We finally received the meds today. I will have my son start taking the berberis vulgaris 1x, 2 pellets 3 times per day tomorrow morning, 3/20.

Currently the bleeding is just a little and not everyday. The holes have gotten a little bigger and are more sore than they had been.

Will start remedy and keep you posted.

Great!

Sounds like a plan!

Many prayers for your son's recovery soon.

Nawaz,

Just to keep you up... My son has been taking berberis vulgaris, 2 pellets 3x/day for 4 days now. There has been no real change, still some bleeding maybe a little heavier. No visable changes but he says it itches a lot more now. He will continue w/these meds for 3 more days.

Is there anything that we can do about the itching?

Thanks
Ken

Hi,

BV must have reduced the bleeding? Let's see what we are doing is not OK? How is he taking 2 pills?

What else is he taking on daily basis?

Please take the remedy 1 hour after each meal.

Is he taking a lot of coffee?

Regards
Nawaz
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
Nawaz,

The bleeding hasn't been reduced yet. He is taking the two pills under his tongue 3 times a day. 1st time is when he wakes up, 2nd time is about 2hr's after lunch (when he gets home from school) and the 3rd about an hour before bed or 2hrs after dinner. He doesn't drink coffee, he only drinks milk, water and gatorade. He doesn't take any other meds or supplements.

Is it that stange that the bleeding has stopped yet?

Ken
 
knodes 9 years ago
Hi Ken,

I was expecting the bleeding to stop by now?

Please continue now with Berberis Vulgaris 1X, 4 pills in 2 sips of water, nicely dissolved with a spoon, 3 times a day until bleeding stops.

More prayers for your son.

Regards
Nawaz
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
Nawaz,

What is 2 sips of water? is that a certain measurement or they amount of water for the pills to be dissolved in?

Thanks for your help
Ken

A sip is a small amount of water you drink from a glass at a time.

Let's say 1/6th of the full glass. Please don't worry as a little more or a little less will not cause any problem.
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
Nawaz,

An update on my son. He is still on Berberis Vulgaris 1x. He took 2pills 3x/day under his tongue for 5 days and now has taken 4 pills dissolved in a little water 3x/day for 5 days. Since I only have one more day left of supply I figured I check in....

The bleeding still hasn't stopped but isn't really that bad. The holes are about the same size, pain is okay but itching is pretty bad. I've noticed a slight odor also, although this is generally after a long day...

Any other suggestions on what we should be doing? Again I am about out of the Berberis.

Thanks for all your help.
 
knodes 9 years ago
Hi Knodes,

After completing Berberis, please have your son take 2 doses of Sulphur 200C, one before going to sleep at least 45 minutes after dinner and the other when he gets up in the morning, empty stomach at least 45 minutes before breakfast. One dose will be 4 drops/pills nicely dissolved in 1/4 glass of mineral water using a spoon. Only 2 doses, Not daily.

Sulphur 200C in needed at this stage as an intercurrent remedy.

Also, please list all remedies you have at home right now?

With more prayers for your son.

Regards
Nawaz
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
Nawaz,

I do not have Sulphur 200c. This is what I have:

Hypericum 200C
Mercurius Solubilis 30c
Natrum Sulphuricum 6X

Also see the attached picture.....

Will any of these do in place of Sulphur 200C?

Thanks,
Ken

Hi,

Sorry to know this, but, none of these will work in place of Sulphur at this stage. Please go ahead and order Sulphur 200C asap.

In the meantime, however, let's give your son Hypericum 200C, 4 drops/pills dissolved in 2 sips of mineral water, daily one dose, until Sulphur 200C arrives.

Also, please order the following remedies that will be required soon.

Merc. Sol. 200C
Calc Sulph 200C

Good Luck.

Regards
Nawaz
 
nawazkhan 9 years ago
Nawaz,

I have gotten Sulphur 200ck. I was also able to get the Merc. Sol. but will have to order the Calc. Sulph.

The last thing my son took was 4 berberis tabs in water this morning. Should we go right to the Sulph 200c remedy or use the Hypericum 200c first?

As for the dosage of Sulph, just to clarify, dissolve 4 tablets in 1/4 cup of water and he should drink all of it. He should do this only 2x, once at night and once in the morning. Correct?

Also, I just realized you said 'mineral water', should I not use tap or spring water?

Thanks!
Ken

'Should we go right to the Sulph 200c remedy or use the Hypericum 200c first?'

Please start with Sulphur 200C tonight. Use spring water.

'As for the dosage of Sulph, just to clarify, dissolve 4 tablets in 1/4 cup of mineral water and he should drink all of it. He should do this only 2x, once at night and once in the morning. Correct?'

Correct.

Good Luck.

Nawaz,

My son has taken the two doses of Sulphur 200c, both last night and this morning. I am happy to report that for the first time in a while there was no blood last night at all!

What will be the next course of action?

Thanks for everything!
