Vaginal Abcess

18 months ago I noticed a blocked gland in my vagina just inside one of the lips it was a tiny hard lump - told to ignore it unless it became painful or big. 9 months later it became painful and got 10 times bigger - had antibiotics which didn't help and it developed 2 heads- went to emergency gyny clinic and they said it looked as if it would burst itelf and advised hot flannels and tea tree oil. Sure enough 2 days later one of the heads burst and it went down hugely but left a small spongy area- I felt that it hadn't all gone but no longer painful.
Few months later a small soft lump was back but not painful but few days ago suddenly got painful again and again alot bigger - saw Dr today and he trying different antibiotic at max strength and told to keep on with hot flannels and tea tree oil and hopefully either the antibiotics will get rid of it or it will burst.
Dr did say that if it doens't burst or go away then its emergency clinic and they will have to cut it our under general which scares me rigid. Its a very painful embarrasing place!
Hoping against hope that someone on this board has had this - told by my GP its quite common but I don't know anyone else but then again not sort of question you ask someone is it!!
Any advise or thoughts as I am terrified of an op.
