After trying various remedies including antibiotics, sitz baths with sea salt and tea tree oil, pheobe's method (tea tree oil, calamine lotion, and witch hazel), another two part method (turmeric powder and coconut oil, then sea salt and baking soda made into a paste with water), silica complex pills, and Serrapeptase, I have finally given in and made an appointment with a gyno. I've been in physical and mental turmoil for an entire month and I just can't take it anymore. I have events coming up and I don't want to risk not being able to attend them if this gets worse.
My cyst has become very painful which I can only assume means it's infected, even though I just got done taking antibiotics. In the past I've been able to resolve it but this is a whole different beast, and I just want some relief. I was supposed to work this Sat-Tues but broke down and explained to my boss the situation and she understands. My appointment is on Monday. I will be meeting this gyno (an old guy with 40 years experience) for the first time. I'm not nervous to have that area examined as I've experienced that many times, but the thought of the procedure I'm assuming I'll be having is terrifying to me.
Has anyone had a good/positive outcome from incision and drainage and/or catheter placement? I'm not sure I'll get a catheter but I'm assuming I'll at least get the drainage. What was the healing time and general pain level? I know there is a chance of reoccurence but right now I just really need this cyst gone. I don't think it will come to a head.
