Hi I had a microdiscectomy on L5/S1 in Nov and
Antibiotics for bartholins cyst in case infected but swelling still there. Are these related to my operation as I an now back to sitting more - the pain is like pressure and burning like after you have a baby. Please can you advise. Worried. Thanks.
Symptoms very likely related to Bartholin cyst.
Hello and welcome to "Ask a Doctor " service.
I have read your query and here is my advice.
Symptoms you describe are not typical for herniated disc disease, Bartholin cyst instead may cause them.
Bartholin gland cyst may recurr even after antibiotics treatment, so, I think that you should consider an evaluation for Bartholin cyst recurrence.
Discuss with your Doctor for these issues.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
