I had a HUGE abscess it was soooo painful, it was from my resection surgery. I instantly felt better when it was drained. I cant even explain it. Mine however decided to "drain" aka explode itself while I was waiting in the ER to get it drained. Sorry that I cant help you with the specifics of the procedure but I wouldnt expect it to take too long, as for if it hurts; I cant answer that either mine opened through my scar from surgery so it was numb. But I would assume they would numb the area? If not, I would tell them to do so.
