I don't know where else to go, I need some input-straight honesty. My friends are shying away, being supportive.
time-noticed a small pea size under skin bump about 1.5yrs ago
Apprx. 1yr ago, red, then eventialy puss. Mainly clear. (as of about 2-3 wks ago, sometimes clear, dead fish like smell. sometimes yellow. And gassy) SORRY for the description.
A week ago, lymph node-groin=pain. By then end of that day, the pain had moved to the inside of leg, and now front of leg. Feels like big bruise.
On tues. this week, went to family doc. He didn't even touch me. Looked at it (which is kinda gross, about 2in diam.) Said it was deep, and that if it's attached to the muscle we're in trouble. What does that mean? Gave me penicillin and sent me to ultrasound.
I"M WORRIED AND STRESSED-should I be?
All i've been reading says, "if left untreated" what's that in time frame?
I'm seeing Doc next thurs.
Any and all feedback is GREATLY appreciated. Even if you type what my friends might not be saying.
Thank you in advance for your time.
