A few years ago, I went to the smirky Dr. Roy Kim to have a cyst removed from my back.
When he met me at the hospital to perform the surgical procedure, he told me he was late for another appointment.
After rushing me into a hospital gown, he then haphazardly removed my cyst as quickly as possible, sewed me up like I was some random piece of cattle … and left.
This took little more than five minutes.
A dark, raised keloid scar soon formed. When I told Dr. Kim about this, he said it was because there are certain people (me being one of them) that easily form these scars.
This could be PARTIALLY true. However, I feel that his sloppy and frenetic surgical work also contributed to the scarring.
I’ve had a cyst removed before … and it did not leave behind a nasty keloid.
Dr. Kim decided to deflate my raised scar with two cortisone shots, which he ROUGHLY injected me with; couldn’t figure out if he was simply on a power trip or just naturally ungainly.
Soon, my scar deflated into a sunken crater, the size of a quarter.
So – to sum up this review: I went in to get a cyst removed (the most MINOR of surgeries) … and was first left with an ugly keloid, then injected with cortisone, which has now left it appearing like I have a hole in my back.
And guess what! The cyst has returned!
