I'm new here, so hi! I'm so glad I found this website, so maybe you guys can help me. I'm young, and never really had any health problems at all, till last year, right before christmas time, I went to a clinic cause I was crying in pain, from what I thought was a hemmoroid. The lady demanded I go to a general surgeon, and already scheduled me appt. across town that day. He said I had a perianal abcess, and lanced it, and seriously, i almost fainted I was in so much pain. The local shot was half the pain and it was supposed to help! I was screaming and crying and after it was done, I didn't feel much of a difference, I was taped up with bandages down there and just in shock. I went home relaxed a week came back and he said it was healing how it should. Weeks later, I was still bleeding, and still in a little pain. I thought it was cause everytime I poop, maybe it stretched out and can't heal properly? He made me go to his office right away and said he needed to lance it again, I had to go under because I told him I couldn't take the pain. I figured maybe he can get a better look at it if i was under too, so I woke up, for a week he had me pack my wond at home, now I don't know how someone that wasnt a nurse could do that, cause at first I tried to get my boyfriend to do it, and I just couldnt stop moving i was in pain and scared he was going to hurt me, he's never packed a wond before, so luckly my aunt (who is a nurse) did it. Mind you, it wasnt big AT ALL! TINY! like a tiny pimple kinda, so i went back and i was still in pain and he said give it some time to heal.... I'm still not healed, and when I had surgery it was in like march. He told me to call him if I was still bleeding in a month, but I think I should get a different opinion. I think there is something seriously wrong with me, cause when I poop, like harder poops, after wards I feel like someone was ramming something in my butt that was huge, like its SOREEE! I know that sounds sick, and I'm not trying to be perverted, but I dont know any other way to explain it. Does he even know what he is doing since he is a general surgeon? Should I go to a different doctor? What kind of doctor? Have any of you been through this? Like right now, I can barely sit cause I'm in so much pain... I just want to feel normal again =( ALSO its the same place both times I have had surgery, so I'm not getting mulitple abcesses, so I'm pretty sure I dont have chrons. =( I dont know my family history either.
