I had an abscess the size of a grapefruit. Please do not ignore your symptoms.
If you are in serious pain and nobody acknowledges it do something about it.
I had this pain a while after partially removing my colon. Where the stitches were, came loose and after months of extreme pain and ER visits one doctor helped. I was rolled back with an abscess that was life and sanity threatening.

Hi, I am somewhat worried after reading your post. I have been in terrible pain with diarrhea for the past few days. I think I will set an appointment asap to see if it is something serious. Will update after my appointment. Thanks for the advice.
