My son was diagnosed with pilonidal sinus but as it was left long it developed into Fistula which is far more complex his operation was for fistula but he had so much infection they had to delay the fistula treatment and the surgeon wrote this was neglected wound.
We had been complaining for long and the procedure was delayed continuously.


Thank you for your query. Had yoir son visited a GP or hoslital prior to the procedure and did nkt receive adequate treatment?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
we had taken him to the GP who had referred to hospital for emergency couple of times but the hospital seemed very complacent we did tell the hospital that the child is in a lot of pain and his infection is leaking a lot but they delayed the operation once and kept saying it wasn’t urgent. However after the operation today the surgeon wrote this was a neglected wound as the infection had spread.

I got some advice from Just Answer expert consultant pediatrician about neglected wound he wroteWhen a would gets infected and does not heal within 7-10 days, the lesion drags on and if no immediate procedure is done, the festering wound is called neglected wound where persons concerned let nature take its course, and did not intervene in reasonable time to hasten cure.Should we be talking this case forward for medical negligence?

It is definitely worth pursuing
