hey all, i just finished reading all these posts about abcess's and hemotoma and doctors cutting one open and sticking a drain and gauze in the wound, freaked me out , cause i have had this lump on my glute for the last 3 weeks, kinda big like a golf ball maybe bigger, finally i got the balls to stick a 18g pin in there, and i ended up draining out like 60-75- CC , yes 75cc of this fluid. it was thick reddish and dark purple, with some black parts(dried blood i assume) . no green or puss like fluid, didnt smell . i had no adverse reations from this thing, just curious if someone had anything like thisand if so what is it? . i still probally have some in there yet, but i started to get what looked like just blood coming out so i figured i better stop. any suggestions, commets or help is appreciated. i know some will say just go to the Doctor, but i figured id give this a shot before i went , seemed to help a lot. the area isnt so tight and hard. and it is 90% more comfortable to sit and move around.
