They caught mine quickly and all I had to do is take an oral antibiotic. Mine was so small that it didn't show CT Scan during the first one, a couple of days later I went for another one and it showed up.
you're lucky. Mine was huge and in my pelvic cavity. They had to put in a trans gluteal drain and I had it in place for six weeks draining. Was such a joy sitting down.
