Hi everyone, first I would like thank everyone for all of the info on this site it has been very helpful. I was diganosed 15 months ago when I had the most painful abcess ever! I needed to have it lanced. I had a few flare-ups after that but nothing too serious. I thought (mistakenly) that I could live with it. Sure enough this christmas I came down with the flu - and wouldn't you know it just as I was getting better the abcess came back. I needed to have it lanced for the second time on Dec 28th. I called my surgeon the next week (she had been on vacation & the lancing took place at the ER) to schedule an appointment - which I have set for jan 24th. I have made the decision to get the excision. My surgeon told me that she tries to use the closed method - if she can. I am so nervous about the surgey & the healing time. Has anyone had experience with the epidurals - are they painful? I am not sure how deep this cyst is. I do not have any drainage (hence the two abcesses) and a pea-sized bump I also have two little black dots right below my tailbone which is what my surgeon called "the cyst." Has anyone out there had these symptoms???
