I’ve been dealing with a cyst on my outer labia since late January and it’s more than doubled in size over the weekend despite hot compresses and other attempted home remedies.
I’m an RN and we’re notoriously terrible patients, but I am headed to the ER sometime later tonight or tomorrow morning. I cannot walk, I am doing this horrible duck walk so my inflamed labia isn’t touched, and it still is agonizing. I am in constant pain and am terrified of what treatment they’ll come up with.
For those of you who know what Bartholin cysts are, I don’t think this is that. What I have is above the vaginal opening not beside or below which is where Bartholin cysts occur. Of course, maybe my body isn’t anatomically correct, lol!
Anyway, prayers are truly appreciated!!!!!!!
Thanks for the prayers!
Went to ER late this morning, was in a treatment room in less than 20 minutes.
Give pain meds, then made incision, drained and packed it and given oral antibiotics.
I go back for wound check/packing removal in 2 days.
I was in and out pretty fast!
And the PA was FANTASTIC!
I made her stop giving me the lidocaine injection…..I couldn’t handle the pain of being made numb, lol
I said the incision cannot be as painful as that lidocaine injection, and I was right.
Thanks again for your prayers, I know they help!
God is so good!
Praying for relief from pain, a correct diagnosis, and an easy fix. And a fast recovery. Praying you will draw near to both God and your husband through this experience and within a week have nothing left of it but greater intimacy with DH (and with God) and tenderness for each other.
