Hello! I'm not sure we can help too much. Every case seems a little different. Drainage -- thick and thin -- is normal from a healing wound. Especially one that has had a large infection. The edges of my wounds were always red and hard -- again normal as the body floods the area with blood to heal it. Pressing will hurt because it is a wound, after all, so stop pressing. If you don't have pain that is getting progressively worse or a fever, I think you can wait until Monday. But when in doubt, call your doctor or go to the ER.
I know what you are exeriencing. One of the hardest things I had to do is train myself to stop looking at the wound every 5 seconds! I had to force myself to leave it alone and not look (other than when I was spraying it clean with my shower sprayer and applying guaze). The whole thing -- having a sucession of huge abscesses over 18 months -- really flipped me out and made me neurotic -- I felt I had no control. I had to remind myself that the wound was going to do what it was going to do (like different color drainage) and heal at its own pace regardless of how much I fretted over it. I finally realized that I actually could tell when I was re-abscessing because of new pain and inflammation. It helped tremendously that I knew I could spot them early and my doctor would take care of them quickly.
I really feel for what you are going through! This was the hardest thing I every endured! Please try to relax and find something to distract you. If the bump isn't rapidly growing, I think it can wait until Monday. Of course, if you get a fever or develop new pain, just call your doc go to the ER.
Take care! Praying for your healing and peace of mind!
