About A year ago I suddenly developed increasing pain in my bottom and a funny lump. My GP looked and said it seemed fine. The pain got worse and I just thought it must have been what I was eating. It wasn’t until the pain got unbearable and I was incontinent of stool at night (x2) that I went to the ER at the hospital where my surgeon works. I got IV dilaudid, a stat MRI and was admitted for an urgent incision and drainage of a peri rectal abscess and fistula. I do not have any form of inflammatory disease. My colon was removed because it just quit working all together. My surgeon had no answer as to why the abscess developed. I remain a mystery.
i am booked for another I&D Aug 29 for a lingering abscess that fills with blood and pus, causes unbelievably bad pain and then ruptures on its own thus making me a slightly less grumpy camper. I have been dealing with this one since March, hoping it will go away on its own. (I hate anaesthesia).
Keep me posted on your progress and I’ll let you know if my surgeon comes up with any theories.
