Hello Sukey, I am sorry to hear about your pain. Cases on here might be a bit of a mis-leading as people might leave it a long time before finally unloading a long story in exasperation/worry as I did. I have been following for 6 months before I posted, and from what I gathered from the nurses and surgeons who treated me, though it's not unheard of my complications were not the normal case either. I'm sure a lot of people get it treated and cured in a straight forward way. Don't be alarmed, it can be an uncomfortable problem but it is not life threatening and there are options and treatments. It's nothing to be ashamed of, I kept to myself at first but when it became a bigger problem I have found close friends and family supportive. When you confide you often find they have problems of their own "down there" they have not shared previously.
