So im 20 years old and from Australia, ive been suffering from reoccurring bartholins cyst since i was 17. Ive had the one on my left side marsupilized twice and have been on antibiotics 4 times to treat it in between. Then just when i thought the last surgery had done the job the one on the right hand side reared its head. Another course of antibiotics and it went away and now 5 months later its back again on the right hand side in the same place. If not treated early they usually get to the size of an egg and i cant walk, sit or go to the toilet without being in so much agony i want to vomit. Sitz baths only provide temporary relief and they never burst on their own completely. Its getting to the stage where i just want the whole gland removed . Im sick of the pain and the self consciousness i get when i have them and the effects it has on my relationship with my boyfriend (even though he is very understanding). My question is has anyone had the gland completely removed or found any other surgeries successful? I dont cope well on antibiotics so often for them.
