Hi Chris,

I am so sorry to hear you are going through this. I had similar issues a while back, it's no fun at all. :(

You will get better, it just doesn't seem like it right now. You have to go to the doctor, maybe a new surgeon consult would help. I know it isn't what you wanted to do, but only the doctors can really fix it, (most of these things can be fixed). Please keep in touch. I am also unfortunately, quite experienced with abscess drainage, wound care, fistulas, etc.

Finest regards,
