I'm 41 and have SUFFERED 4year with my left bart gland. It happened out of no where. When it is abscess "normal" cyst size for me is about tip to first knucle of thumb. When it's abscess it's an egg. There is always discomfort especially if I'm on my feet all day. When it breaks and drains there is relief and i can breath. Until then im a crying freak in pain. Just with the last episode (abscess for 2 wks) the dr has finally agreed to remove (gland excision) the gland. He is not a fan of the marsup and felt it return. It's been a week and 7 stitches! I was told that 2-3 days recovery and donut pillow would be it. WELLLL, no post op papers with info, still draining, still hurting and not walking or sitting and it's SO bruised and ugly (poor hubby yelled OMG!). I just cant see going back to work (I clean houses) tomorrow. I'm trying to be patient and healing but the "2-3" days is over and Ive now have a shelf full of Tylenol and ibuprofen to take every 6 hrs. Percocet made me so nauseous and constipated...yeah, try pooping with those stiches! Please let me know how much more I have for recovery and drainage....Thank You!
