    I really dont know whats going on now, but my sinus is HUGE>....I took my dressing off tonight and was cleaning up the tissue from the sinus. And I spread it as far as I could, I couldnt believe how big it was. I could put my finger in it, its that big. I did take a q-tip and clean around the hole, and I decided to see how deep the hole was. I was able to put the entire q-tip head in it and it just kinda stuck there. I didnt want to push anymore, kinda afraid of what it might do. But boy oh boy did I bleed. Lots and lots of blood. Looked like someone cut me with a knife...

    thats my update for today ..... [:^]

    JT,

    Wow, that's a pretty interesting update. my large sinus is that big. it is the one i have obviously had since i was younger. my mom told me i had a sacral dimple when i was a baby. that may have been the cause of my PC, or at least a helpful factor in it's existence. i hadn't noticed it in years until my wife started checking my PC when i first started having problems with it.

    only thing i can think is that maybe the sinus is opening up to try to let something pass. hopefully that will be it and you are near the end of this. good luck.

    still nothing different for me.

    CM

    Thanks CM and Linda.....


    You could be right that there is something bigger trying to make its way out. But if thats the case, because of the size of the opening and the fact I can put my finger in it, it kinda makes me afraid to see what will come out.

    Linda,

    well i am kinda ashamed to say this but your right, i have only been taking 1 teaspoon. don't know how i got mixed up and thought that was right. oh well it has only been a few days. i will start taking a full teaspoon now and see if anything changes. thanks for catching that, i would have taken the whole bottle and never thought any different.

    JT,

    I too am a little worried to see what might happen when i get to that stage, but just think of the weeks of recovery this could save you and painful dressing changes. that is if mine and Linda's "predictions" are true. i really do hope this is it for you and that after whatever is left inside there comes out that you heal up for good.

    Hello JT...Im suffering from PC for about 4 yrs now, and had a surgery once about 2 yrs ago. My surgeon basically cut all the tracts out and left the wound open and told me to let the wound heel from the inside out and I had a nurse come to my house basically for about a month and do my dressing an I was finally healed. Than after about 6 months or so my cyst started swelling again and went back to my doctor and he basically opened up the wound in the office and let all the smelly puss and blood outta the cyst and found out that the nurse left the bandage in there. I came home and it took me another 3 weeks or so for the cyst to completely heel. Than once again after several months same problem swelling and burst open at home, I figured I change my Dr and started going to a different surgeon and this new surgeon is a very nice guy and prescribed me an antibiotic called "Levaquin"(pretty expensive) and I started taking these and saw a great change in my cyst, basically it kept getting smaller and less drainage. At the same time I figured I try some Homeopathic medicine and went to a Homeopathic doctor and explained him everything and he prescribed me Psorinum Cm, Cm is the potency. It usually comes in a liquid form and he told me to take it once about 10-15 drops and wait for about 15 days or so. So far its been more than a month I am noticing a great change in m cyst and my new surgeon is very amazed and the good news is I dont even need to secure it with a bandage or anything because there is no more drainage period. But since you know that the surgeons dont really believe in Homeopathic medicines, he told me he wouldnt be surprized if it comes back later on down the road. SO far very good reactions. email me if you need any more information or anybody else thats interested.

    I've been sick for the last 4 days, not sure if its a virus or what. But I dont know if its because of all the medicine i have been taking, but I havent had too much trouble from my cyst. Not much drainage, I guess that could be because I have been somewhat dehydrated.

    Anybody else have any changes to there cyst while being sick and on other medications??

    smm...I'm not familiar with what you bought, Linda would be the best one to ask about the colloidal silver. Sorry I couldnt get to your previous post sooner. I dont know which you should try first, I have come to the conclussion that the alternative route has done all it can do for me [:^]


    I have been sick for a bit, so nothing much has been happening...Not much drainage or bleeding. But I know i'm better now, cuz I am bleeding and bleeding. I just move the skin in that area and I have blood pouring out of the sinus and squirting out of the cyst. I think its time I see a doctor. I wouldnt think all this blood coming out of me can be a good thing

    Hello J2... Im very sorry to hear that the Homeopathic medicine isnt working out for you... but you know what im in the same situation as you are. Like I told you couple days ago that things are working out great they actually werent. So I went back to my surgeon today and he goes I told you that Homeopathic medicines wont work for something like this. So im only left with 1 option which is to go under surgery, he told me to pick a date for sometime this month and he will operate on me :( He said its gonna take anywhere from 3-4 weeks to heal up and Im gonna have a nurse come to my house to change my dressing everyday. Let me know J2 what did your doctor had to say about your cyst. Takecare

    JT - when you talk about your sinus and your cyst - what do you mean? You have two holes in different areas? I was under the impression that when someone's cyst drains it's draining from the little sinus hole.
    I'm very sorry to hear of your situation.

    JT - I just thought - maybe you should actually consult a homeopath - they would have a much better grasp on figuring out your specific body and how it reacts to specific tinctures. Maybe the silver is just not for you - but some other one is. There are so many factors that go into deciding what homeopathic treatment is best for each individual. I feel like you left this step out - through self-diagnosis. It's worth a try![:8)]

    The cyst is at the top of the cleft and the sinus is maybe 1/2 inch below it. The best was to describe what my cyst looks like is think about a "cheerio" it looks like that with a hole in the middle of it. The outer part of it is hard and tough tissue. But it is much smaller than a "cheerio"
    Yes, I have a sinus and the cyst that are visible. The sinus has been on the surface of the skin the longest, its just like a hole that I drain from. After it opened up, I started draining from the cyst only for the longest time and my sinus actually closed for a while. I've had fluid, blood, nested hairs come out of the actual cyst. I've also had all of these come out of the sinus as well. The sinus opened back up for whatever reason and now I drain a mixture of fluid from the cyst, but pretty much only drain blood from the sinus

    I did initially consult a homeopath....thats who put me on the track of taking Silicea and Hepar Sulphuris. I do think Homeopathic remedies do work, but it is to an extent. Depends on your body, and how bad whatever it is that needs to be treated is.

    What's interesting is that I asked another homeopathy forum about your silicea and hepar sulphuris treatment - and they should be used by different types of people - the hepar for quarrelsome/maybe agressive types and the silicea for sluggish types - the indian homeopath that writes there said to use myristica first to open the wound and then just silicea. Just thought I would throw that out there. They haven't responded yet to the silver. But I'll let you know what I find out.

    Thanks...well from what I was told and also what I have read...Silicea and Hepar Sulphuris were the two most common remedies used for boils and abcesses. I was told that they might not work and if that was the case there were others that I could try. It was just a matter of using the right combination for a particular body type. Within 3 days I had positive results, so I knew something was doing the trick.


    I wasnt told that the Silicea and the Hepar Sulphuris were for two types of people. The Silicea was to help with the ingrown hair and also help the body dissolve the tissue from the cyst. The hepar sulphuris was for infection, puss and odor.
    What forum are you talking about?

    Thanks so much for your responses guys...

    JT - the forum I was talking about is at abchomeopathy.com - I have started my own thread there seeking answers to me specifically if you want to see what they are telling me - also - I found this tidbit on another site (homeopathy4all.com) that I thought might be interesting for you...QUOTE "In homeoapthy, in order to avoid side effects, dosages should be taken as advised. There is often a feeling that if medicine is given more often (especially during fever) it cures faster. This does not hold true for homoeopathy. In fact it causes problems and hampers the process of cure. The homeopathy involves accurate and minimum prescription."

    JT - well - i know your doctor's appt. is tomorrow - I was thinking about you and I've done quite a bit of reading - I am absolutely positively sure that you are OVER-medicating yourself - you are actually poisoning yourself know I think - homeopathic medicine is to be taken in small doses ONLY to trigger immune response - not larger doses to actually poison or prevent healing. i'm sure you will still go to the doctor tomorrow - but I'm positive that your body has cleaned itself out and is ready to heal - but can't because the silver is preventing this - I think if you stop taking the silver (ifyou haven't already) your body will heal itself. Just wanted to let you know I was thinking about you.
