Abscess experience anyone?

Postby sean530 » 21 Dec 2018, 14:05

At this point, I'm worried out of my mind. i have this semi-constant dull ache on my right anal side. when i try to manually prod the area there is no pain or anything and that's the only good sign but id love anyone input as to what this might be.
I deep abscess is my worst nightmare.
If you had an abscess im so so sorry you had to go through it but can you please tell me what it felt like before it started?

Hi Sean. Today my CRS told me I have a "very small" abscess right next to my fissure in the 12 o'clock position. Everything I've read online says an abscess needs to be drained (mine is already leaking a small amount of pus), but my CRS wants to avoid anything that may worsen my fissure, so is treating with Cipro and Flagyl for 7 days. If it hasn't resolved in that time, I'll need a surgery to drain it. If you are able, it's best to have a CRS take a look as an abscess can lead to a fistula and you don't want that. An abscess can also lead to systemic problems. If you have a fever, you should go to the emergency department. I hope you are doing better!
