Avatar n tn For 2 weeks I have been dealing with a very painful abscess on my ear, where after alot of research and several trips to a local medical clinic and ER, I have found that what I have is an abscess in the Preauricular pit/sinus. I have been given 3 rounds of antibiotics, one of which I am still taking (Clindamyacin). I have yet to see any improvement from taking the antibiotics, so I went to the ER yesterday where they attempted to do and Incision and Drainage procedure.
Avatar n tn The pus forms inside the abscess as the body responds to the bacteria. Antibiotics are not required in the treatment of a simple abscess, unless the infection is spreading into the skin around the wound known as "cellulitis" (which I had).
Avatar n tn Let me tell you from FIRST HAND experience because just had emergency surgery because my outer lip got SUPER swollen and in just 2 days it showed to be an aggressive abscess in just 2 days that abscess got 2 inches deep and took over my entire outer lip that it looked like I had elephantitus and the open sore was getting larger at a very rapid rate of speed, something told me to go to the emergency room that my life was in danger because of it so "from the time I got there to the time the s
1294692 tn?1272400469 I just read over my full medical report an it list 3 things that concerns me.... tubo - ovarian abscess, Uterus (anterior fibroid), and a nabothian cyst.... I really want kids and I'm praying to God this all can be fixed quickly... Really upset with the doctors last year because this should have been handled then.
168348 tn?1379360675 I was in an indoor pool for 2 hrs in very hot steamy air and I bet that is what caused it to open up YIPPEE .. hot warm compress just by being there for 2 hrs sitting in a chair as my kids swam inside .. I didn't go in the water.
Avatar n tn I am 26 and underwent an oophorectomy on may 4th and my right ovary and tube had to be removed as i was diagonised with Tubo Ovarian abscess. The only symptom / problem i had was frequent high fever, high WBC count, general weakness. There was also a v.v. mild pain in the right abdomen. The Sonography revealed the presence of a TOA which was then confirmed by a CT scan. 4 months back, during my routine sonography, 2 cysts each of 4 to 5 cms were seen in my right ovary.
Avatar n tn So we brought her in again and the doctor found an abscess in her mouth and the tooth that hurt her in August was a bit grey. We went right to the dentist and he said the nerve was dead, she needed a root canal. Her jaw pain is almost gone but she is still extremely fatigued,and has shortness of breath even when doing stairs. She had bloodwork done and her c-reactive protein is elevated. She had an EKG and it showed left atrium enlarged. We are waiting to get in to see the cardiologist.
Avatar f tn I was in an accident in 2011 and had to have a total disc replacement c5-6 then pelvic recon. and SI IFUSE done for asymmetry and degenerative SI secondary to horse accident, AS and psoriatic arthritis. I have had C diff 4 times in my life...yes 4 times!!!! First from antibiotics then recurrence months after it was "cured". The last infection happened for not reason out of nowhere a year after the last. I had anal cancer stage 0 in 2006. I am a mess!

Avatar n tn I underwent an oophorectomy operation recently and my right ovary and tube were removed as i was diagonised with TOA (Tubo ovarian abscess)of 10 cms in size.Surprisingly i didnt have any other symptoms except frequent high fever and high WBC count and general weakness. A negligible/very mild pain was felt in the right abdomen.
Avatar f tn Tonight I found a soft spot in my cat's tail.. She doesn't really like having her tail touched so I don't usually run my hand down her tail. I probed the spot and she definitely didn't like it, but didn't make any pain noises. I also noticed her tail has a noticable pivot point in that spot.. I'm going to call the vet but was hoping someone might be able to give me some insight. I'm very concerned about this, I can't sleep thinking she might be in pain or have something wrong with her.
Avatar f tn I bought it and broke the capsules and applied it on my face like the instructions said. To my surprise immediately after I finished rubbing it in my edema dissapeared! It remained like this the entire day so I continued to use the oil the following day as well.I kept it up for about 6 days and my edema had dissapeared! I thought I had cured it so i stopped using it after that..a day after that it returned. When I tried using the oil again it wouldn't work!!
419158 tn?1316575204 so as the title says im in a pickle. I dont know where to start. I only have a few minutes so im not going to be able to say much. I dont have internet/cable so I have no way of checking this. I think we are going to lose th house. DH/we lost our bussiness and just friday had our truck repossed.
131114 tn?1380086790 gov and you can look up the trials that are available in your area. Also the Hep C Advocate is a good place for information about trials and tx in the pipeline. Good luck with your visit. What Center are you going to?
1340994 tn?1374197577 What she had was a ruptured diverticula, abscess, and peritonitis. She almost died in her 40s with husband out of the country on business and 4 kids at home. So now I'm in the office showing my inflamed lymph nodes and listing the possible causes, and instead of taking any of my concerns seriously, they said no to everything but wouldn't say what they thought it was. The nurse practitioner did write an Rx for an antibiotic we agreed on, but then added Flagyl.
Avatar n tn She has Dr.s baffled and even her Neuros in Chicago at Children's are interested in someone else to look at her case. She has had countless MRI's,lp's,and an angiogram.It started in Jan of 2001 at age 7.She had headaches and low grade temp.She went into a grand mal that lasted 15 minutes.They did an lp which showed an increase in her wbc count and an MRI which showed multiple lesions.They diagnosed her with ADEM.After 2 weeks and her fever getting up to 105,they sent her to Mayo.
Avatar n tn I know at this age there is alot that is going on in our lives. Kids, careers etc and we tend to not focus on ourselves but on everyone else. Scary thought to think I might not be around for my kids and that I actually am doing this to myself. I just wish I could pinpoint the "IT" factor. Thanks to everyone for their posts-least I am not going lala.
Avatar n tn I am only 23 years old and I am a little worried, about 6 months ago I had a CT scan on my stomach. They found nothing in that scan but noticed a spot in my right lung. They did another CT scan and noticed that there was 2. They said it might be scar tissue but to make sure I need a CT scan every 6 months to be sure. I don't understand why I would have something like this I feel I am too young.
649848 tn?1534637300 Sarah, I started losing my teeth when I was in my 20's - I was lucky enough to lose my 2 bottom front teeth to an abscess that resulted in a partial so I didn't have to run around with no front teeth; I've lost a few more over the years and had to get a different partial that the could add teeth to... I lost all my uppers when I was in my 40's and have had a denture of some type ever since. The only reason I'm putting all this out there is because I eat nuts of all kinds...
2186126 tn?1384961026 She had been struggling with seizures for a year and a half before she suddenly developed a tooth root abscess and was unable to heal from. Sadly, it forced me to put her to sleep w/ in a week. Her teeth didn't seem so bad, though I wanted to have them cleaned last year to be on top of her oral care. However, because of her seizures, my vet didn't want to put her through dental surgery/ anesthesia; this was a mistake. She should have referred me to an animal hospital where they can resuscitate.
751951 tn?1406636463 Birthday Tuesday (53), so church gave me a "surprise" (I won't tell) potluck dinner after this morning's service. Very nice. Spring break week, & Tim's off, so Nancy took the week as vacation, and we're heading for a couple days & nights in a cabin in the woods, in SE Ohio's beautiful Hocking Hills region. Tim has a cousin I've not met who will go along, and we actually found a place that allows Annie & Bandit to come along, so that will be interesting.
579258 tn?1250652943 Antibiotics and pain medicine are being continued and there is more pain than I would have imagined, however, in hindsight it is like being stabbed in the tummy. So .. 3 doctors and about $3,000 later, it was an abscess that seems to be healing. I am beginning to be up now in short bursts and the pain is becoming manageable. Thank you all for your love and support, your prayers and your humor. Looking forward to returning online soon and getting back on board with healthy eating ..
Avatar n tn woke up with big mass in my breast n it hurts !!!!!!!!! to even wear my shirt .
Avatar f tn I keep telling her how much pain I have but she ignores me by telling me to be patient and this might resolve on its own in about a year. I don't know what to do, I have 4 kids and one of them is 2 years old and he asked me the other day if I didn't love him because I kept pushing him away from my chest which hurts when he leans on me. This is so upsetting for me I can 't even take care of my family because of my constant pain. My doctor keeps telling me to take morphine for my pain.
Avatar m tn SO glad to hear you are feeling better! We made it to day 3!!!!! We are on our way my brother! I woke up with a blinding toothache. I have had a broken tooth for a while but since I was taking so many drugs, it never hurt, but wow is it hurting now. I have a dentist appt. this afternoon and for the first time in years I'm not trying to figure out how I can score drugs from the dentist. I am actually looking forward to telling him that I wont be needing narcotic pain meds, just ibuprofen!!!
Avatar f tn Before the bleeding began, I had a perirectal abscess. I don't know how that could be linked, but shortly after the abscess wound healed, the bleeding began. It is usually a small amount of red blood on the toilet paper. There also appears to be blood on the outside of the stool (the blood is bright red). Less frequently, there is red blood in the toilet but it seems thick, it doesn't turn the water pink, but it stays together in one spot.
Avatar f tn Small perforation of the anterior mitral valve leaflet measuring 38 mm in diameter. No vegetation or abscess. Trace valvular MR as well as through the perforation. EF 66% LVIDd 51.4 mm LVIDs 32.6 mm. LA Diam 35.2 mm Ao Diam 32.0mm LVd Mass rvsd 8.1 mm Ind 91.20 g/m. Is this bad? Can I still exercise? I see a cardiologist next week but I am so worried. Normal blood presuure, I do not take medication. 5 feet 4 1/2 inches weight 122. No smoke no drink. No kids.
Avatar m tn I saw a naturopath doctor, she changed my diet (Paleo diet), put me on turmeric (curcumin), I did acupuncture (there are specific points for breast abscesses), I used doterra oils (frankincense -topically and orally), and I had an overall positive attitude. Everyday I imagined myself happy and abscess free, I believe in the law if attraction. I think everything helped me heal! Naturopath doctors, acupuncturists, Indian doctors... It seems like they understand better how body works.
