I also have been there unfortunately....I had four abscess with two drains after my TC and had the needle aspiration after my abscess with ileostomy. Each time I was sicker than a dog with infection, admittance to hospital, and lots of abx. The drains were a pain in the butt just to have, but were just uncomfortable....the needle aspiration hurt a little, but both times I was given fentanyl for pain and versed (conscious sedation) and lidocaine at insertion sites. I was back in ER a week after aspiration on Friday and still have 5mm collection, but they are letting it go for now. I hope you will get some relief soon.
