Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
The obstruction of bartholin duct due to infection leads to formation of a bartholin cyst.The treatment involves taking antibiotic course for a particular time and if it does not resolve then you need to get it excised and removed surgically.
Thanks

I had a subcolectomy about a year and a half ago. I've gained about 30 lbs. No one seems to have an answer. I tried weight loss plans, exercising (including zumba). I am hungry all the time and have up to 6 BMs a day, Now I've tried taking a diet pill. I losted about 8 lbs but couldn't continue with the pill becauise of heart palpitations. When I eat healthy foods, which are all high in fiber, they go straight through me. Still no weight loss.
