    ShellyH got a reaction from Tonysco in Advice on Abscess please   
    I do get the importance, I would hate for someone else to go through the same, I guess there was a part of me thinking it could be possible I did something wrong with the injection rather than the unsterile oil I injected but I have thought about this long and hard, and honestly, I’m quite strict and consistent with the practices I take. (Nursing background) and having done this many times in the past, it has to be the oil I injected.
    I got my first glimpse of the wound yesterday, really upsetting to look at. It looks huge
    I am going to be left with scar tissue.  On the plus side I haven’t had any more puss removed, it’s just being packed daily and cleaned.
    i am still on the IV antibiotics, and I’m getting frequent visitors. I’m in good spirits, it could have been much worse,  x

    update.
    Came out of Surgery late last night.  Settled on the ward. I am on a permanent drip as they are giving me antibiotics by IV
    Surgeon  told me that the Bacteria infection was deep and they had to take out over 200ml of Puss from my wound and it will possibly need draining again. They have left the wound open because it will heal better apparently, i haven't seen it yet.  Mum and Dad are coming up to visit me this morning, so ill get my first glimpse.
    I can't walk and won't be walking for another day or 2 and i have also been told that i may not be allowed home until the weekend
    Regarding competing, i was hoping to be on a PCA show that i have done before in April, but that is not possible now.  I am likely to be missing the gym for the next couple of months
    I am absolutely devastated guys. I have had a few guys ask me which lab it was that i purchased, and whilst i do understand the reasoning behind the request, unless one of the moderators thinks that the correct action i wont be revealing. 
    The repercussions of this have been incredible.  Health, Work , child care, family etc etc,  I know it could have been far worse, but it could have been far better too.   Iv'e deleted facebook lol.. 
    Sorry i can't reply to every message individually, but i do thank everyone of you for the messages of support.  Lovely group of guys xx

    Can i just thank everyone on this forum for pushing me into the Hospital.  I have been told my a Doctor here that any more delay could have cost me my life, and im still not in the clear yet..
    I am going in for urgent surgery.  I am expecting to go in shortly.  I will have to be put under a general anesthetic, (this scares me...)  
    I have a badly infected Abscess that needs cutting open and draining.  I have always had a fear of going under anesthetic and have managed to avoid it for 3 decades, sadly avoid i can no longer do.
    Guys, i did everything that i normally do. I showered before the injection, i use alcohol swabs on the injection site, i use a brand new Green Needle to draw up the oil and i use a Blue needle to inject.  I have never had a problem before.  facebook really did fu** me up. 
    Thank you so much Guys, i am still unclear on what to expect after the operation, tbh i am just concentrating on one step at a time.  I guess i will not be competing this year either

    I get it’s not the answer you were probably hoping for. But I think unanimously everyone on here thinks it’s the best thing to do. 
    I would suggest go to A&E tonight. Probably be quite quiet on a Sunday night so should get seen pretty quickly. 
    Keep us updated on how you get on. There is a lot of knowledgeable guys on this forum who can give support/advice. 
    Best of luck.

    Looks like you injected too far round your ass shelly. Looks like you've ruined a nice peachy bum whilst you was at it but it does look infected. 
     
    Defo need a trip to the hospital though, dont take any chances 
  16. Thanks
    ShellyH reacted to swole troll in Advice on Abscess please   
    To echo the above you're in over your head 
    Forget this self admin antibiotics and tell them at a&e absolutely everything you've done inc the antibiotics dosing and how far into the course you are.
    Losing half your glute or worse is a very real risk if this isn't sorted asap
     
  17. Thanks

    f**k that looks bad. 
    Get to A&E immediately.

    Why would he lie to them? The doctor is probably the only person you should always be 100% honest with
  19. Thanks
    ShellyH reacted to godsgifttoearth in Advice on Abscess please   
    go to a&e. day you went to a massage and wellness studio. you got a massage and a vitimin b12 shot. the shot has since swollen.
    if that's an infected absess you could lose your entire glute or die. oral anti biotics won't do much but maybe stave off a risk of sepsis
  20. Thanks

    Looks like you’ve jabbing in the wrong place there aswell mate, I always go too right of the glute and top left on left side, looks like it’s bang in the centre of ya cheek! Would defo get that checked looks like infection... 
  21. Thanks

    Go to hospital.
    Yea you could deal with this at home if you know what you’re doing and have help... But you don’t.
    Chaulk it up to a life lesson. Happens to all of us.
    Be honest with them and they will help you.
  22. Thanks
    ShellyH reacted to Ray Gin in Advice on Abscess please   
    I would suggest go to A&E and get it checked out.
    6 days later if you are still in a lot of pain, and have heavy swelling that’s not a great sign.
