Am I lucky?

My pc ride began and ended in a week. I don't know what the chances are for recurrence, but I may be really lucky. I'm writing to see what people think. I felt some pain on a Sunday morning and by Monday night I was in agony. I sat in the tub for a while and went to bed. Tuesday morning my pc had burst, so I made an immediate appt with the doctor. He drained it further and cleaned it up, gave me some antibiotics and told me to keep it clean and gauzed. Its been a week or so since then, and it feels almost back to normal. Should I take comfort now or prepare for a reflux?!
If this is your first occurence yes you might be okay. My husband had one occurance 2years ago and hasn't had a problem since. He told me he had one occurance before that too and that both times where after a fall where he landed on his tailbone.

So yes there's always a chance it will go dormant but if it were me I would try to keep that area extra clean and dry in the mean time.
Well, I guess luck was not on my side. From Jan 2004 when I noticed the PC, until Sep 2004 when I had the surgery, the infections kept getting more frequent and more painful.

I do know of one person who has never had the surgery, and she's only had 2 flare ups in like 8 years. So I guess you can ride it out and see. . if that's what you want to do. I think that more often than not, most people end up having too many probs. and have the surgery. I suggest the surgery, but that's just my opinion.

Good Luck!
