So back in April I had an abscess that was drained. Then weeks later I started to feel pain and pressure but on the other side.
After a check up visit my CRS said that I needed surgery.
Last Tuesday June 12th I had surgery where the doctor scraped out an infection and placed a seton in.
So there is still a wound ? I think he cut some out and then the seton comes out of that. It’s blue with like black knots.
Anyways it’s been a week and I’m just uncomfortable. The wound is already healing but I think it’s the seton causing the pain and discomfort.
Is this normal ?
What has your experience been with a seton?
Also, discharge instructions said to sitz bath 3 times a day which I’ve beeb doing. The first 3 days some blood and discharge would come out. Now a week later nothing comes out in the sitz bath? Is that normal ?
When I change the gauze there is some discharge in it.
I have my check up appointment in a couple days and I’m praying everything is ok and I can end this nightmare of a journey soon!! Idk how long the seton will be in for yet.
Thanks in advance for all the tips and advice!
