I have been packing my wound now since surgery and it has significantly healed with no problems. Was wondering if I can stop the packing now and just keep it clean and covered. I'll post one before pic and one current pic. Thank you

Hello Mama0114,Your pictures are not familiar to any aesthetic procedure. If you have had a pilonidal sinus operation your healing is very good and you may stop packing. It is better to ask your primary doctor for your progress or give us more information. Good luck.
