Avatar f tn Losing weight helps to reduce the occurrence rate in overweight people. I had to get surgery due to the frequency and severity of the abscesses in my right armpit. The doctors removed my sweat gland and all of the skin that had hair. I have not had any more abscesses in that area since but continue to have them in other areas. Depression is common with the condition due to the painful, embarrassing nature of HS so it is important to monitor her for signs and symptoms.

1657910 tn?1302375661 My doctor ordered cultures of the fluid to see what grows. Nothing every grows in my case. Yes it is a new abscess that delevoped in the same spot as the abscess that was surgically removed in Dec 2010. My surgeon did tell me it could happen again. So I wasn't to shock that it developed again just bummed out that it happen again. I was very happy when the surgeon did say I wouldn't have to have surgery again. I don't want to have to heal from a open wound again.
Avatar n tn We proceeded to go to the emergency room, where they told me that there was an abscess the size of an orange on the left size of my vagina that they'd have to do surgery on.
Avatar f tn I am a smoker so I don't know if the pain is from smoking or from an infection I may have received from the tooth abscess. My question is, what are the symptoms of an infection in the heart? My other question is, is it possible that after taking 2 antibiotics would an infection have a chance of making it to my heart?
Avatar n tn within three days i was in the hospital for a week, CT scan showed a colon abscess, i dodged emergency surgery and responded to IV antibiotics. now i'm two months out of the hospital and a GI and surgical followup recommends bowel resection. i've read that the bowel does not repair itself. what should i do? also could the abscess have actually been caused by the colonoscopy. thanks.
Avatar n tn Has anyone experiecned this issue. It is sometimes called a subareola abscess. This is a chronic condition- I have had 3 surgeries to removed the abscess because of the pain associated with it. It is back again and my last surgery was in November. I quit smoking because that is what my one doctor to me the was the ONLY cause and that is I quit smoking it will stop them from returning 100% of the time.
Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for the update. Symptoms of brain abscess may develop slowly, over a period of several weeks, or they may develop suddenly. The symptoms you mentioned such as changes in mental status - confusion, irritability, slow thought processes, decreased movement and speech, headache and language difficulties, and vision changes are consistent with brain abscess symptoms. Talk to his lawyer about his case and discuss the legal aspects of this.
Avatar n tn I never knew that was what caused my fissures, resulting abscess and fistula- these symptoms are what tipped my Dr.s off. I have only dealt with one abscess and currently I have one open draining fistula. I am going to begin Remicade next month in an attempt to close my fistula, w/o doing surgery. I have some reservations because this very med that can *help* heal fistulas, can also lower your immune system even more and make you prone to infections and more abscesses.
Avatar f tn Hi! I had lower back pain and an MRI showed following findings: - Sacralisation of L5 vertebra - An altered marrow signals involving L5 and S1 vertebrae including left ala with an associated soft tissue representing granulation tissue / abscess in paracentral region (left > right) as well as an intra spinal anterior epidural soft tissue component compressing thecal sac and nerve roots of lumbo-sacral plexus s/o- An infective -inflammatory pathology like Koch's.
Avatar m tn All my research seems to be inconclusive as to the cause or the cure, and some complaints ranged from 1 day after surgery to 2 months after surgery. I surely hope the latter does not apply to me here.
Avatar n tn last week i developed an abcsess in my tooth. my cheek became very swollen. the doctor said the infection from the abscess had passed from my tooth into my cheek. they put me on keeflex. within 24 hours about 60% of the swelling in my cheek had subsided. i am now on day 6 of a 10 days worth of the keeflex.
Avatar f tn I had an vallecular abscess on my lingual tonsil drained 1/17 in an emergency procedure. they told me it was in a rare location and that my vocal chords were hemorraged in surgery, so that i would be sore a while. there were loculations in abscess. "the tonsils did show exudate tonsilitis biltaterally but no evidence of obvious abscess.
Avatar n tn i had an abscess on a tooth that had already had root canal treatment went to the dentist he said i had the abscess after taking an x ray and said the tooth needed to be removed. without asking whether there was anyone to go home wiith me or if the rest of my day was free, he, under just normal injected into the mouth painkiller proceeded to pull the tooth i felt most of it and screamed i had previously asked can i have gas and air or something he said id be "fine" .
Avatar f tn My father (69 yo) has urinal catheter placed due to his colon cancer surgery (24th July 2009, east europe). After a month they removed it but he had incontinence and they put the catheter back. Soon he got infection (he had high temperature and no other symptoms) and had some antibiotics. Last week he went again to have it removed, and still had incontinence problems, but most importantly he got high temperature again.
Avatar n tn Question.. How long before your scar looks better? I had surgery 12/13/2008. My scar looks tons better, but you can definitely still see it!! When will it fade, so I do not have to constantly hide it with necklaces and turtlenecks? Thanks!
Avatar n tn possibly a piacital cyst, that is spelled very wrong sorry
Avatar f tn Have just been diagonsed with GM with abscess after almost 6 mths. It actually started as Fibrodenomas in April 10'.. That settled down with Evening Primrose and Vit E.         In Sept 10' one day I got to see this horrifying looking lump above the areola which was tender, sore and dark in colour. I visited a General Surgeon after 8 days (thinking it would disappear on its on in between).
Avatar f tn When they originally found the Chiari they also found a 2mm basil tip anuerysm. I went to a specialist at Duke before the surgery and he said that he would proform and angeogram 6 weeks after this surgery was completed.
Avatar n tn I went to the E.R. thinking it was my ovary. Never had symptoms before. I have had 2 more attacks since then. The only real bad one was the first one. I never had a fever, blood, or vomiting. I don't have diarhea, or constipation. Yet, I had diverticulitis.Cat scan said so, 2x. I was treated with antibiotics. Now they want me to have a colon resection. I am terrified, and not sure I want to do it. I have been without an attack for 2 months now.
Avatar f tn However, it has never turned into an abscess thankfully and my gastro said surgery will only make it worse so we leave it alone. I am afraid I don't know anything about a fistulectomy with a seton - sounds as if it is like the procedure sometimes done for internal haemorrhoids. I don't know if you have had Remicade in the past, but this has had good results with fistulising Crohn's.
Avatar n tn He had the surgery same day due to an abscess and I did not get your reply in time. Why don't we hear more about this Talwin and the other one, Torodal ? I don't know what you mean by agonists and antagonists in opiate use. Also, he got Ultram every 6 hours for only 2 days. They said when that much pain is present that even narcotics act only on the pain and not on the addiction. The oral surgeon tried to tell me it was ok with alot of pain and very very short term use.
Avatar n tn i recently had brain surgery for my epilepsy, and they stuck a cathode or w/e in my penis to make me automatically urinate. a few weeks after surgery, there is a slight pain in my right testicle. is there a reason why?
Avatar f tn I to had to have ER surgery for an abdominal absess and one of the symptoms that they had not gotten it all are those that you describe as possiable W/D symptoms. W/D from percocet shold feel like a light flu but yours sounds wrose. Be sure your Dr.s know about your symotoms as they may want to do some tests to be sure they got all of your absess, and that your infection has not returned.
Avatar f tn He concluded that I have a dental abscess and need surgery to remove a tooth. He gave me amoxicillin. Took that for 10 days. Pain goes away. Told me the infection needs to be cleared before surgery and to wait on my quote from my insurAnce. See my allergist again for follow up and he says to only come back if I have hives again and sends me on my way. (Not possible with antihistamines in my system.) he didn't perform a single test or lab he said he would.
