So this site has been my go to since my first marsupialization. I find it comforting to read similar stories. I couldn't find many recent post so I wanted to take a moment to open a discussion regarding other symptoms I am experiencing to see if others can relate.
I am 3 days post cyst lancing and word catheter and this is much more painful than the recovery from marsupialization because of the word catheter I'm sure. I'm finding it more difficult to walk and get comfortable in any one position, forget about sitting! I also have pain and tingling in my groin, hip and bottom cheek with numbness going down my leg into my toes. All on the right side of which the abscess occurred. I've had my husband massage my foot and calf which relieves it for a moment then as I start to get comfortable these sensations are back. I am becoming depressed and irritable cause the pain is constant and it's taking its toll. I am taking pain meds every 5 to 6 hours like clockwork but I am still so very uncomfortable. I've read how some women have managed to remove the catheter themselves and at this point it sounds very tempting. I am also taking sitz baths as often as I can just to get about 20 minutes of relief! I'm at my wits end and in tears as I write this. I don't understand why this keeps happening. Months after my first marsupialization, I still felt a small lump and some discomfort after driving long distance. But my doctor assured me everything was fine and it healed nicely. I felt she wasn't very empathetic and acted like my symptoms were very minor and insignificant. I'm thinking the incision healed so quickly that it didn't allow for complete drainage as this time it actually became abscessed..
I would love to hear about symptoms others have experienced or what they feel is causing these. We bought a house 2 years ago and unfortunately our master bath has only a shower. I'm convinced it's from not taking regular baths. I believe the hot water helps with secretions and opens pores so it seems logical. Please share your thoughts and or experiences. I'm not getting much support from my doctors and getting frustrated that they take it so lightly. This ordeal has affected my life in so many ways and I can't take that lightly. I am a self employed hair stylist and my business has been affected. I am fun and outgoing person but I get tired and achy easily and become easily agitated when I feel the discomfort. Thankfully I have an amazing supportive husband who has been nothing but patient with me although he has his needs. At this point I just need someone to talk to. My heart goes out to all the sufferers out there! This sucks!
