Most embarrassing trip to the doctor.... the rest of the story....

Well well well ladies and gentleman. The previous story may have been sunk....but there is more to this story. For you newbies.....http://eggheadforum.com/discussion/1212409/most-embarrassing-trip-to-the-doctor/p1

  • Over the weekend my pain returned and I made the assumption that I had developed another cyst in the crack of my butt. Apparently, if you have them more than once, they look at alternative solutions to remove hair and thus reduce the risk of the ol butt cyst. Wife has been requesting of me to do some man scapping....but don't think the back side is what she was referencing. 
  • Yesterday there is a growing level of discomfort and the wif checks it out for the first time (in almost 6 weeks). Its Mothers day, and she were not too happy with my gift that just seems to keep on giving. (She should have been a doctor instead of an art teacher though). Hell I could prob be retired by now.
  • Ms. northGAcock takes a good look into the depths of the crevices known as Robins big ol butt...and determines that there is some inflammation. There is the appearance of a bump of sorts, but appears to be the old wound has turned purple or bruised looking
  • Today (being Monday) I get up and my boxers (that is what i wear in case you are wondering) are all wet on the back side. I realize this when i turn to sit on the bed before standing up.
  • Well low and behold, the bump / abscess had popped at some point in the night. It had drained (I'll spear you the details)....and I was now dropping blood. I took a shower and retreated to my old routine of cramming gauze soaked in peroxide in to the crack of my butt. 
  • Wife confirms that it is in fact the same wound and not a new one....which I guess is a relief......or maybe not. Come to think of it, ain't got a clue what to think of it other than this $hit is back.
  • I am now back in the market for more gauze dressing and peroxide. You might all want to consider purchasing stock into these products. I am using the Wallgreens 4-Ply dressing. 
  • I called the doctors office and left a long message for the doctors nurse. I had to leave my name, phone number, date of berth and a detailed message on what I was calling about. Can you imagine the job of listening to that **** all day?
  • The Doctor's office called around 2:30 this afternoon.....and apologized for my still having this problem. I had to explain that I didn't have this problem for about 4-5 weeks...butt i need it to go away permanently.
  • Well they called me in some antibiotics and have me coming in on Wednesday for a look see.

I know you all have been on the edge of your seats since the old thread was sunk....and so here is a new one so you can keep up with the new developments. I am most certain there will be some pending humor, embarrassment, stupidity and general all around inconvenience.  More to follow as it unfolds.

    Not happy that this "PITA" has resurfaced, but happy that you are able to find some humor in it. 

    This can't be pleasant. Hoping you will be rid of it soon.

    It went away just you could enjoy Blasting said Butt.  No it's there again. Just so that we ensure you've done your due diligence.... There wasn't a semi decomposed crawfish stuck in there, right?

    I am thinking if any of you out there have fell on hard times and will be unable to cook at the North Georgia Eggfest......I could use your cooking area and set up a peak-a-boo viewing. Maybe $10 a look see?

    If you’re going to pay people to check out your crackhole-cysts you’re gonna need to pay them a lot more than that.

    I was about to say. I usually get paid more than $10 bucks for something like that. Not much more than $10, though.

    Robin, so sorry for your current situation. I am hoping the meds will get your backside back in shape. 
    Tell Party, we feel her pain and understand the struggles she deals with on a daily, no wait, a minute to minute situation.
    Get well soon, hoping for the best.

    Robin, have you met with a wound/ostomy nurse? They can make the best recommendation for healing. Also, hydrogen peroxide can damage healthy tissue and delay healing, so unless you were specifically told to use it(in that case, follow the doctor's order), I'd recommend just using normal saline or using the saline to dilute the H2O2.

    A surgeon performed the procedure last time. I will defiantly take this question with me on Wednesday when I return.

    Is it more of a burning or stabbing pain?

    Check out Dr Pimple Popper (Dr Sandra Lee) on YouTube. I watch cyst, dilated pore of whiner and lipoma extractions before bed. But I’m weird. Still, she does say that if you don’t remove all of the cyst sac, they can return. Riveting stuff if you have the stomach for it. 

    But very sorry to hear you are still having issues. Best of luck.

    Stuff like that, ear wax removal, and chiropractor adjustments are what make YouTube great
