After attending a festival Sunday pain free I was woken up Monday morning by a sudden pain under my arm to the point I was not able to lift my arm above my head.. I was in that much agony i took myself down to a&e and they took one look at it and said "ouch you must be in pain" clearly they couldn't see it in my face whilst they poked at it.. I was given a course of antibiotics and painkillers and as I expected with my luck they did nothing but make my lump worse. So... Yesterday morning I went to my doctors who referred me to my local hospital for their opinion as I sat in the a&e department for 2 hours I was then seen by a doctor plus a surgeon who said that the lump under my arm wasn't just any lump but an abscess and if i don't have it removed I will end up with blood poisoning so I didn't think twice and went for the surgery!! I'm now back at home feeling sorry for myself and a little sore. I have a nurse coming to my home on Saturday to Change the dressing.
Was just wondering if anyone has had one removed before and if so, how long was the recovery time? As I'm going away on the 24th June.
