Done bartholin cyst excision. Thick, white drainage. Tender, painful. Taken antibiotics with no relief

I had a large bartholin cyst excised on Wednesday. She said it drained as much as a large egg. It does not seem to be getting better. It looks like a white cottage cheese substance has blocked the opening. It's still very tender and painful. I have done sits baths with no relief. I am finishing a 5 day course of antibiotics. Does it need to be excised and drained again?
