Hi Fallcolors and Sore Tum,
You two have been very helpful, thank you! When I say my abscess pops, I mean it drains vaginally. It is like a flood, with a combo of green infection, white stuff streaked with blood, then clear with blood for approx 9 days. The last 2 have popped without flagyl, just hot baths. I find the flagyl causes extreme D, causing many accidents up to 10/day and in my sleep. They tell me the fistula is like trying to find a pin hole in the skin. If it is on the underside of a flap of skin they can't see it. I took my hunira again lastnight, so it should be working at healing the fistula and I will be pooling and starting round 3. I think I will ask for another MRI.

NostraHistoria - how long were you on the iv antibiotics? Did the abscesses reocurr?
Frogeleita - I've not heard of this mushroon drain, but don't they need to find the abscess first?
Sore Tum - I sure hope you are successful this time in finding your abscess. Please keep me posted, I will be thinking of you.
