Okay so today was absolutely crazy. Have had an abscess for over a week. Went to my PCP today, who was someone I had not seen before. My question to myself was, "Why in the hell did it feel like I wasn't being listened to?" It is listed in bold letters that I am a KNOWN mrsa carrier and that I'm being followed by both my surgeon and an infectious disease specialist. I have recently gone 12 weeks without needing an abscess landed or iv antibiotics. He took 1 look at it and said, OH, we can't deal with that here. It's too deep. Go to your surgeon." What a pain in the ass!!!! So, have an appointment on Thursday morning (which will be intense) followed by my post-op appointment. Fun times are here again!!!

SMH - what's up with doctors lately? Am so sorry. :(

Mimi, it's just really annoying for me and a waste of time and spoons.

Sounds frustrating, at least you can get it looked at this week. Stay strong. Gentle hugs

I understand Amanda. It takes so much just to go to an appointment. :/

There is one positive thing that I can think of with that one. At least my underwear doesn't have to come all the way off cause it's in a space that's easily accessible. Unlike appointment #2 which is a post op checkup after female surgery. Yuck!

Sorry, was having a rambly emotional kind of moment with that last post. Please ignore

Apparently, my body took care of most of the infection on its own which is a good thing. Just needed to get the last bit of infection drained out of it. It's been a very good day today.
