"perianal abscess"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

I had operation of perianal abscess last year which was for me unsuccessful (problem show up again two weeks after operation). After the operation  I was sent home still bleeding with blood all over me.  No one call me to check how l am recovering or to book me compulsory appointment wich every one should have after operation.  And on top of everything last Saturday,a year after operation  abscess start showing again,so on Sunday l went to the wipps cross hospital with idea that  in this early stage can be clean and sorted out much more successful. Yes but no.  The surgeon told me that is nothing wrong with me for the moment but if something show up to go to my GP and ask for  antibiotics.   So now I have 4 cm. abscess which is growing very quickly. Antibiotics doesn't help me at all. Thank you
