Thank you for that info, I often wonder if this is a fistula as opposed to an abscess. What makes me wonder that more is that it came back after finally healing on Sept4th that was the 1st day I didnt need any gauze even to cover the area. Even when I had a fistula they didnt see it on the CT scan. The pain is radiating around the area that "popped" too. the areas around it are at least 3 inches to the left of the spot that drained and about 1.5 inches to the right. I had told my doc that I was having some pain and it hurt to cough, sneeze etc. The pain intensified last night and even more so this morning. Luckily I was able to open it up so that it now can drain out. I hope that this thing will go away and stay away. I dont think I can deal with this thing coming back its on its second time now, had abscesses after my ostomy surgery too and a wound infection thanks to the air for brain resident...I personally think she belongs as a doc in the morgue...least that way she cant kill anyone or have malpractice suits against her.
