Okay so I am unable to sit or lay down

Okay so I am unable to sit or lay down on my back because of huge pain in the top area of my butt crack, but it's more like 1.5 inches from the top into the crack. It started getting worse day by day. So I went to my doctor she said it was a huge abscess and that I need to take hot baths and antibiotics and to watch it just in case it starts to show pus. Did antibiotics for 3 days went back still not any softer so she could drain it. So she gave me a new antibiotic and told me to try it for 3 more days. But today I had my mother look at it and she says its turning dark, black. And that's because on my appointment on Friday it was more red than black. So was it just a bruise this whole time??? Or can abscess' turn black before draining???

I ve been having this stomach ache for a few days now and it kind of goes away for a few hours but then it will randomly come back. Especially when i am laying or sitting down for a while and when i stand up i feel like i need to throw up. It also sometimes feels like i am really hungry or something and so i eat but that doesn t really help.

I have pelvic pain always when sitting and laying down. I had a pelvic break that did not fuse together 3 years ago. I have to take pain medicine to be able to rest at night. I have osteoporosis and osteoarthritis also. I also have rheumatoid arthritis, but my doctor says that does not cause my pain. I am 72 year old and work full time teaching. I also have pain from arthritis in back, arms, hands, feet, left leg. The break was pubic rami in 2 places. Any suggestions to relieve some of the pain. I have also lost 25 pounds in the last 3 years since my fall and pelvic break. I am now going to have a ct scan with prep. I did physical therapy after fall and was in hospital 3 days and rehab center 3 weeks. I used a walker for 5 months afterwards. I have not used a walker since then. Appreciate any suggestions.

Pelvic pain I am experiencing pain in my pelvic area and am having trouble sitting and laying down comfortably. It hurts all over but worse on the right side. I am not pregnant and I don t know what I could have done to cause this. I don t think I m dehydrated because I drink lots of water every day. Any ideas? Thank you.
