Anyone had one? How long did it take to drain? Did it require surgery?
It's a cyst that comes from an ingrowing hair at what you'd politely call the small of the back, and apparently most of them require general anaesthetic surgery. Thing is, the doctor who told me this said it's quite common, but I've never heard of people having it before.
and it needed surgery to fix. been off work since december 15th and was told by the hospital yesterday i need another surgery next month. also the nurse has to come every day to pack and dress the wound, and i'm on mental antibiotics so i can't drink. its a fucking barrel of laughs let me tell you. have you got one?
Yes, but it doesn't seem to be like most of them in that it doesn't hurt at all and, with the aid of antibiotics, it seems to be slowly healing over seven weeks after starting to discharge.
mine doesn't seem to respond to antibiotics so i need the surgery again. but if its starting to heal that sounds pretty good. you jammy git!
