Some years ago, I had an abscess as a result of one of these Bartholin cysts. I was subjected to an excruciatingly painful surgical procedure in the doctor's office. I was quite sick for the next few days. When returning for follow up checkup it was revealed that I had developed a serious blood infection and was admitted as an emergency patient with emergency surgery to follow. I spent a week in an isolated room in the infectious disease ward. I believe this was the physician's error.

I take perindopril and atenolol for my high blood pressure. It lowers my heart rate and controls my blood pressure well.
