Hi thanks for writing to health care magic
Your 36 week prgnant, with abscess sacral region.
You have still two weeks to go for your delivery.
You hane not mentioned ,what type of delivery your gynaecolgist has planned for your
If she has planned screan section(lscs),then she can do the lscs lscs 2 week earlier and drain the same time
But if she has planned normal delivery,then you have to takes a course of antibiotic for a week .
once the infection subsides and maturity of your baby reched .she can induce you labour
You can also take a course of antibiotic even if she has planned lscs ,but you don't want surgery before maturity of your baby
Hope I answered your question.
