Thank you all for your advice and replies. I soaked in a warm sitz bath from 5pm last night until about 11pm. This morning it hurt worse than anything i have ever felt. I called my doctor and moved my appt up to tomorrow at 10:45 and after that I noticed that it is draining blood. Is this normal? Should I get back in the bath or just put gauze to soak it up? or should I squeeze it?(def DONT want to touch it unless absolutely necessary to stop the pain.) or should I go to the ER and let them do it?It is about the size of a golf ball and is causing my entire leg to hurt as well as my stomach is hurting. Any advice???

I would say definitely follow fallcolours advice, I have recently had a hell of a time for nearly a yr with an abscess that I left too long, tried to ignore, and it got bigger, deeper, and worse. My initial seton surgery worked but the abscess continued to tunnel, so I had to have a second surgery and mushroom drain inserted, which I still have.

Mine drained blood too –  pus-filled blood, which smelt infected. It is very gross, but hopefully you get it seen to soon. I left mine too long and I wish I hadn’t, but I do also blame my negligent Gastro (who I have since fired). Mine would drain considerably, but it still wasn’t enough, the abscess was huge in the end! its taken over 6 months and its still not healed.

I hope you get the help you so need and soon. Hopefully you can find a colorectal surgeon who specialises in IBD. They really understand what you’re going through (and the PAIN)!
