abscess

Avatar n tn They say it could be a seroma, hematoma, abscess, or neoplastic deposit. My hysterectomy was at the end of July, does this finding have anything to do with that surgery. Does anyone know? Going to see another GI specialist soon, I want to know what I should ask.
1670196 tn?1306844845 Surgery is not without risk and you are describing a common post-op complication of hysterectomy-- hematoma versus abscess formation. Both of entities often require incision and drainage and are not easily diffentiated from each other. It does concern me that you are now having urinary symptoms associated with a suspected hematoma that may not be resolving.
Avatar n tn In your case it is important to know when the weakness occur, right away, soon after surgery or delayed (such as hematoma or abscess formation) The most useful test is an EMG of not only your quadriceps muscles but also other muscles in the area in search of involvement outside the femoral nerve territory. A nerve conduction study may be helpful too. If you have not been evaluated by a neurologist and EMG/NCS, then you should talk to your doctor.

Avatar n tn of 2010, I was under the knife AGAIN to remove that infection and formation of blood clots. During my stint in the hospital in Oct. of 2010, I was getting out of bed for the first time after surgery and realized that I had no use of my right leg at all. I had to drag my leg behind me while using a walker to be able to be moblie. As time passed and after many stints in physical therapy, I strengthened my right leg enough to be able to begin using a cane in the spring of 2011.
Avatar n tn boils are often caused by infected hair folicals. Bacteria from infection form an abscess or pocket of pus. The abscess can become larger than a ping pong ball. Boils occur in areas where there is hair chafting. the face, neck, armpit, breast, groin, and buttocks are common sites.....then it goes on to treatment with cloth. doesn't mention any serious outcomes like surgery.
211940 tn?1267884866 In October, 2007, I developed an extremely sore throat, accompanied by an abscess on my tonsil. At the same time, I found that I could not turn my head side-to-side, nor lift my arms forward, sideways, etc. The Sports Medicine doctor took x-rays, which turned out so poorly, he could not determine whether or not I had a hole in my rotator cuff. I was sent to rehab., whereupon I was told that the tissue in my upper arms was filled with knots, and that my shoulder joints were not frozen.
