On This past Christmas Day I had to go into Emergency surgery due to an abscess. I’ve been seen for an abscess 3 times within 6 months.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I’ve had surgery on December 25th due to an abscess near my rectum. I had a really high fever, could barely walk, and felt so bad and was in such terrible pain! I had to have a drainage on it for 7 days I was not prescribed any antibiotics after they did the surgery they just sent me home with some pain pills and it was the worst thing I’ve went through. Then on May 30th(5 months later) I got an abscess on my inner thigh, it got so swollen and big and it caused cellulitis as well, I had the same symptoms from that as well I had to have a procedure done on my inner thigh they numbed it and then cut it open and drained . Well removing the bandage and changing it when I was home as instructed by the hospital the next day when I changed the bandage The drainage that they had put in it had come out so May 31st I went to the hospital again to make sure it was OK and I was told that it was fine and that I was OK to go home. Then a few weeks after it was healed another abscess came on my inner thigh in the same exact spot they did the procedure on. I waited it out a few days to see if t went away because it wasn’t to big and it ended up going away. Now it’s july 10th (2 months later) once again the abscess that was near my rectum is now back again. I went to another hospital and was advised that it is not big enough to perform surgery on and they basically told me that I have to schedule an appointment with the same surgeon that did my previous surgery on the same area in order to get it taken care of they sent me home with some antibiotics. I am 25 years old and nothing like this has ever happened to me in my life. Please let me know if there’s anything that you can do to help me Because the Doctors at the hospitals are telling me That there is no cure for it and there is no way in preventing it that they don’t really know too much about it it is still being studied. They said that a lot of people Go in for the same reasons due to an abscess that was infected. I just want to be healthy I really am sick and tired of being sick due to this issue and there is nothing that anyone can do about it it’s not fair that I have to go through something like this or that anyone has to go through something like this! Thank you for taking the time to read this.
