Hi. Dr Rick here. I completed an Internal medicine internship in NYC and have two decades of clinical experience. How can I assist you today?

Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 2 months ago.

There are many possible reasons why the would did not close...as such, it may not be your surgeons "fault".

If you do not trust her to revise and close the wound then you should find another surgeon.

But, if you go back to her, then, yes. I feel she deserves to be paid for her time. Medicine is not like home repair where you don't pay the contractor until you get the result you wanted.....

Make sense to you?

How long should the healing take for a Marsupialization? Can it take up to 3 months? How about having sex? How long should you not have sex after a Marsupialization?
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 2 months ago.

Depending on the complexity of the surgery and any post op issues, I would think things would be pretty well healed up in 6weeks. At that time you should be able to have sex.

Of course, the best person to advice you on this issue would be your surgeon.

Does this make sense to you?

My doctor said that it was deep and grape size. If I have sex before the six week healing period would I have any complications?
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 2 months ago.

Yes, you could very well have complications if you have sex before everything is healed up enough to withstand the stresses and strains of sexual activity.

I would strongly recommend that you wait the 6 weeks.
