I think you should of had a ct scan instead of an mri. An mri is good at seeing fistulas, but as far as abscesses go, you need a ct. I always have had ct scans to find my abscesses....and they have found really little ones.
Another thing, I always call my surgeon when I feel "the pain". My gi doesn't have anything to do with my abscesses...there is nothing she can do for them.
Hi Cayer, I would say you8 are definitely not crazy, for those of us who know just how excruciating and debilitating abscesses are, we know that pain and how scary it is to think it might be ‘coming back’. I was ignored by my GI for years and he didn’t look at my abscess even when I had been sent to hospital to have it looked at under anaesthetic and treated with IV antibiotics. The only person who ever really ‘understood’ the pain and difficulty of the abscess was my colorectal surgeon. He put setons in for me and then – a few weeks later – when there was still pain there, I went in ASAP and he took a look and saw that the abscess still had remaining trapped sepsis, so they inserted a mushroom drain which I still have.
I would say get in to see a colo-surgeon ASAP because they know what to look/feel for and they understand! Let us know how you go!
