Hi Frogelita, I am so sorry this is happening to you. The same thing happened to me - after my first abscess surgery, there was sepsis which would not drain from the wound, and it got more and more painful, and I knew something was up, so I saw a surgeon as soon as I could and had to have tge mushroom inserted. I have only just had my mushroom removed, so it was in for about 4 months. The 2nd surgery was much less traumatic, and less painful for healing because I caught it 'quick smart' before it got huge (like the first one). Hopefully your experience is the same. Did he say if he is putting a seton in? Or a mushroom? Or just laying it open?
Let us know how it goes, thinking of you....... I know how hard it is, when I heard the news that I would have to have a 2nd surgery only weeks after my first, i broke down. But it is for the best and it will clear....
Was the Lupus induced by the remicade or did you have it before the remi? Do you think the weight gain could be partly due to the thyroid problems too? Did you gain a lot? That’s no good that you’ve had side-effects…… I’ve had some weird ones too but I am going to wait and see what the Dr says before I start freaking out. The good news is I’m feeling good and my surgeon was so impressed with things ‘down there’ and I finally had my mushroom drain removed! Yay! I am sooo glad you don’t have another abscess! These things just take a very long time to heal, don’t they?
