I've been in extreme pain now for a year and a half. For the first three months I just had pain when I sat down, very painful. Then I started leaking a clear brownish fluid out of my anus, which after 2 months progressed to bleeding with the discharge. I had a fistulotomy done which stopped the bleeding. But about 4 months ago I developed a lump to the right of my tailbone, about an inch south of the top of my but crack. It's about the size of a golfball and hurts like hell when I sit on it. And when I push on the lower part of the lump, I can feel fluid and air and hear it. The pain I've been going through for the past year and a half has been debilitating and severe. I've has 3 CT scans, an x-ray, and several digital exams by the GI surgen who has been treating me, as well as a sigmoidoscopy and a colonoscopy. The Doctors do not know what is wrong with me. Can anyone help or share their story?
OUCH! that sounds painful! I had a lump in my lower back before, but i only had it for a couple of months. I could move this lump around as well, but i couldn't hear any sounds pushing on it or anything. It became pretty painful. I was SCARED and i went to my doc and she told me that it was a muscle that "popped out". I'm still not exactly sure what she ment by that, but she told me to just leave it alone and it would go away. A couple of months later it did. Could you try to see a back specialist or something?? Maybe you have something to do with the muscles in your back like a major muscle spasm or something. That sounds horrible!! i hope you're feeling better soon!
another thing you may want to do is ask your doctor if this could possibley be a fistula which is wher stool tunnels out side of bowel or diverticular can cause one .they are very painful i have had 2 surgeries done due to fistulas and considering the location of the lump. i would sugest seeing your doctor as soon as possible due to the fact if it is a fistula i was told by my doctor it is possible for them to rupture. good luck with your problem .
