About a week ago I was admitted to the ER with what they referred to as an "abcess" on the inside of my upper thigh. The lump was as big as a golf ball, red, hard and it hurt like hell!! It was at the point where I could hardly walk. The doctors in the ER gave me a sonogram then insisted that I have insition and drainage done. I have a severe aniexty disorder especially when it comes to my health, which made the surgery horrible!!! I had to take various aniexty meds before the surgery and they still barely calmed me down!! They stuck a needle in me to numb the pain and it was the worst pain i've ever experienced in my life! Fortunately after they stuck the needle in the pain went away and all I felt the rest of the operation was pressure. After it was over they packed the wound and told me to return to the ER three days later to have the packing changed. Things have not been good since I left the hospital. I'm a freshmen in college and I was eager to start my second semester today but the doctors said it wouldn't be wise for me to move in yet. I can't shower with the packing in my leg and i'm somebody who cares a lot about my hygiene,
I feel disgusting!!! I also have pretty bad acne which has gotten worse from this! i can't leave the house because of the severe pain i'm in and I'm extremely nervous to get the packing removed and replaced tomorrow!!! If anybody has experienced anything similar to this any help is needed!! I feel like nobody understands what I'm going through and how miserable I am! I feel like this has taken over my life and it's not a good feeling!
