Four months ago I went to my OBGYN after suffering with a cyst for 2 weeks. He numbed the area opened the cyst and it drained! Instant relief! He put in a word cath and sent me on my way. However, that relief was only brief. Since then I have visited my office on 5 different occasions. I've taken 5 rounds of antibiotics (1 round of those costing me $162.00) I thought for sure after that I would be cured. That's not the case. The opening where the cath was placed is obviously still open which I don't have a problem with. The real problem is I still have a yellowish fluid ( which I feel is infection) filling up this hole and causing just as much pain and irritation as the cyst it's self. They done multiple "wound cultures" and each time they came back negative for anything. This "stuff" has to come from somewhere and be caused by something right? I can now tell when the hole is filling up and needs to be drained, which I have to do by hand. I constantly have to carry a mirror and flashlight in my purse so I can inspect. I'm starting to feel I will never be normal again and I will have to drain this thing for the rest of my life. My husband and I ride a motorcycle so as you might imagine this isn't something I really want to deal with forever and it makes for a rather uncomfortable ride. Has anyone else had this problem? What should I do?
