Guess who's going back to surgery?? Apparently, between the time that I had the surgery (you know, the one where the surgeon said the abscess was not infected and felt no need to lance it, drain it, pack it, and let it heal from the inside out like she originally planned on doing) and the time I went back to see her for my follow up appointment, the abscess festered back up and has become quite angry. It's much more painful and though it hasn't for a few days now, it has been draining some. I guess we're doing this the hard way now.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why you don't count your chickens before you go to see the surgeon for the follow up.
