I had my ostomy surgery and a muscle flap put in on April 25th. I have 2 abscess one between the vaginal area and where my anus use to be as well as one beside the closing of my anus. Taking baths, dr out of town. On antibotic but any ideas? I don't want them to cut on me again!

I would see who's on call for your doctor. That's something you want to have drained, it will be a lot less painful if you can get them to drain, and of course you'll have to be on antibiotics, maybe they'll put you on something different of something in addition to what you have. A phone call to a doctor is needed.
