I thought for sure it was going to stay in this time and I might finally get this taken care of. But of course, about 60 hours after insertion, it's coming out. It hasn't come out all the way, but it is 3/4th of the way out and will probably come out during the night. I am calling my gyno first thing in the morning, and she will probably have me come in. I'm assuming she'll either try to re-insert it, which, I really don't want anymore, or just take it out and try again next time. :\
I feel like just giving up. I really don't know what to do anymore. These abscesses are taking over my life. I truly live in fear of them. They are ruining my sex life AND my school, since I have to miss days every month thanks to the recurrences. I'm tired of trying the word catheter; I feel like it's just clearly not going to work. The next step up is marsupilization, however, I don't know if I want it. Sure, it may work, but from what I've read, a lot of people still have recurrences after that. The anesthesia part scares me as well.
I just purchased some essential oils to use in sitz baths that apparently help these cysts/abscesses, but that is truly a long shot. I'm desperate and have nowhere to turn because no one understands. There isn't a lot of information online about them to be honest, and no one has any idea what I'm talking about or what I'm going through when I talk to a friend or even my parents.
Has anyone had a marsupilization for these? Or anything?
I would really like someone to talk to, some advice, some..anything right now. I'm so discouraged.
It was just now pretty much all the way out so I pulled it the rest of the way out so at least I wouldn't be in any pain anymore.
But, now I can see the giant hole where they cut into the abscess and where the word catheter was. Is this..bad? I mean, am I at risk for any kind of bad infection..or septicemia or anything? :\ I worry a lot and I just really don't want any more complications.
