I was referred to Dr Nash after surgery to remove a pilonidal cyst – which is a sac filled with debris and hair that occurs in the area at the top of the crease of the buttocks overlying the tailbone. This cyst and overlying skin in the area became infected, forming a painful abscess. I describe it as the mother of all ingrown hairs on your tailbone that is horribly infected and spreads out like an octopus, eating the bone and nerve tissues. These cysts are notoriously painful and difficult to get rid of. It made sitting incredibility painful and difficult.
After surgery to remove it, healing was difficult. The pain was getting worse instead of better – it was not pain from the actual surgery, but nerve pain. The cyst had damaged my spinal cord. I went to several physicians over the past few years, but none of them knew how to treat this or even where to refer me.
I was finally referred to Dr Nash by a neurologist that knows his experience and success with Regenerative Medicine, helping patients in pain, suffering from difficult conditions. After meeting him and a thorough evaluation, I felt very comfortable with the treatment plan he developed for me — three rounds of ultrasound-guided injections of Regenerative Medicine Therapy. After the first round, I seemed noticeably better, which gave me hope. After the second round, I felt confident that we were making significant improvements and wanted to wean myself off the nerve pain medications that had given me horrible side effects.
