Just had a pilonidal cyst/abscess drained today. Causes: sitting all day (aka working). Who's had one and can you claim workers comp? or at least get a damn standing desk?

Sitting may exacerbate it but let's be honest - I don't think otherwise healthy people that are taking care of themselves are the 99% of people who get these. Not just picking on you, but let's all as a society try to take a little more responsibility for our health and prosperity and quit blaming others.

Sure, I might have the extra "staff 15" weight but I'm by no means obese, and live an active lifestyle outside of work. After this experience I will be starting a regular exercise routine, but other than sitting for extended periods (sedentary job), risk factors include being male, in your 20's, and having a hairy crack... So nothing I can control. However if standing desks were offered, this could have probably been avoided. Not blaming anyone, but workers comp is for paying medical bills related to workplace injuries... Why would I not check into that?

Haha, I didn't realize hair-level on butts was one of the defining criteria in choosing a man. I'll have to ask my wife how she could have possibly looked past such a deal breaker. Your search for hairless ass-cracks will probably lead you in 2 ways EY2... Chicks, and gaybros.

As for searching for a new employer, I will be doing that as soon as paternity leave is no longer a concern of mine. Looks like I'll be footing the bill for a standing desk attachment for the office.

OP, there is more to taking care of yourself than weight, though it sounds like that contributed. A cyst doesn't develop over night. There's many hygiene issues I suspect played a larger role than sitting all day. Look at all the people here that sit all day and don't get cysts.

@OP hairy crack is something you can control. Go get that shit waxed if the hair is causing issues. Chicks do that all the time.

I don't spend most of the time at the client, and I take showers daily thank you very much. Saying look at all the people who do x and don't get x is a pretty stupid argument too.

EY2, every man has a hairy crack naturally, unless they barely have any body hair nayurally, like many Asians.

I'm not even very hairy to begin with, and can't even grow a beard. Also can't imagine what those with supet hairy arms and full bear-like chest hair have to deal with. 😣

EY3 that sucks! This is definitely one of the most painful ordeals I've ever had, and am going yo do everything in my power to avoid recurrence! did you have to get pilonidal area surgically removed, or just had them lanced and drained?

Ask hr if you can get a standing desk for medical reasons. Problem solved. I know PwC will give you a standing desk for "reasonable accommodation" so I don't see why ey or any other larger firm would be any different.

I suggest contacting HR, I don't see why they won't accommodate. Would cost them less than having you quit. In our office anybody can go to the procurement website and order an attachment if they want to.

I had my cyst surgically removed.
I was pale in the face when the doctor dug around back there to scoop it out, and then proceeded to show me what he pulled.

The absolute worst part was when I needed to have my gauze dressing replaced every few days by my parents (this was in high school). Agony off the charts when someone is moving something inside a hole near your tailbone.

I had one a few years ago in my back. The worst pain! Never knew the cause of it and had it drained over the wknd so I didn't miss any days (so no workers comp). Hope you feel better.

Hmmm, you can and should talk to hr about options for prevention in the future. But if your injury did not cause u to miss work, workers comp won't pay for the time to have the issue treated. But the firm could file a claim. The only difference is that you dr visit would be charged to the workers comp rather than ur insurance

Haha, i had one of those. I would tell hr I need one. Best way to go

If you spend most of your time at client's location, sitting in some conference room, I just cannot imagine how they are going to manage to put a standing desk there for you

Re: lateral moves & pay

Been with my employer for 4.5 years and am considering a lateral move into a group that’s being newly created.
Connected with the hiring manager and he says my current background would make me a great candidate, but there would obviously still be a learning curve.
Anyhow, I then spoke to the recruiter and she ‘warned’ me that if I got an offer it will likely not come with a pay increase.

Is that common? And if so, how do I make the case for more $$
