I was cyst free for about 9 months until one day I felt it coming back. It didn't hurt at all .. It was just there, so I left it alone and started taking my Siliciea pellets because these had helped in the past. I also started doing sitz baths with table salt 1-2 times a day. Nothing helped and I could feel the cyst getting larger, so I made an appointment to see my gynecologist and he lanced and drained it for me. A week after he removed the packing, the cyst was back and was infected this time... It was a Friday evening and I didn't want to go to the ER so I waited it out and went to urgent care the next morning where the cyst was again lanced and drained the doctor took a culture and put me on Augmentin until the results came back... After the lab results he switched my medicine to put me in a 7 day course of Flagyl 500 MG. I hated being on Flagyl because it gave me a metallic taste in my mouth and everything I ate and drank tasted like poison (I just took my last pill of the course..yay!) anyway... The cyst had gotten a lot smaller but was still there after the second lancing so I decided to order serrapetase ... It has yet to arrive but my cyst has gotten pretty flat now ever since yesterday.
This is what I have done differently in the past 24 hours and have gotten the most results from:
1. Boiled a black tea bag (also had orange peel and other herbs) and placed on the cyst after it cooled down a bit
2. Hot compresses directly on the cyst
3. Went to see my doctor who pushed out more fluid but did not lance it m ... I have also been applying pressure for the past few hours and will continue to do so to push out as much as possible
my doctor said that since it seems that the cyst is draining a bit on its own I should refrain from the sitz baths because he doesn't want water going IN to the cyst .
Once receive the serrapetase, I will take that and see if it gets rid of the cyst completely.
What didn't work for me:
Sitz bath with salt
I have my fingers crossed...if it comes back a third time then my doctor has told me that the next option is to do the gland removal
