A few months ago i had surgery for a piondial abcess. Id had 3 abcess’s previous but had managed to drain them at home, never seen a doctor for them as they wernt as severe. This one was horrendous. No sleep, constant hot sweats, crying with the pain. Went to the doctor and they rushed me to general surgery as it was a huge abcess on the verge of bursting under the skin which could have been serious, i was rushed into emergency surgery. I woke up from the surgery in agony, i was dosed up on more painkillers and took the the ward. After a few hours, i stood up to go to the loo, there was blood everywhere. It was spirting out of the dressing and i freaked and passed out. Woke up to being poked and prodded by a consultant and it hurt so bad i made them stop. Gas and air was brought in and i used that while they pulled all the packing out of the wound. I was told id need more surgery as the blood vessels around the wound had burst and i was losing to much blood. Rushed in for another surgery less than 12 hours after the first. Kept in hospital for a few days then went home to rest. Few months later after all the packing, i felt another lump. My first wound still hadnt healed, but i went to the doctors who referred me to a specialist. I see the specialist in 2 days time. The wound has now heald i guess (skin over the wound) but i think there is a tunnel. If i lean on anything, press at the top of where the wound starts, it makes a squelshing noise and clear fluid comes out of a very small pinprick in the skin. Has anyone else had this, where it has healed over the top but theres still a cavity, and what happned? Im too scared of another surgery. Im already freaked as i have a cyst that most likely will need removed, but they wont do that if theyre reopening the wound. Will it need reopened for the cavity?
