* The condition of pilonidal sinus is known to re occur after surgery at any best center of the world.
* In our clinic, I explain relatives thoroughly about the chances of reappearance of the same after any best procedure.
* In your case, I suspect the same issue rather than stitch infection, and I would quote revision surgery after clinical confirmation with MRI evaluation.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
