  • “Professional Surgical Drainage”? I’m glad that the “doctor” isn’t taking care of me or my family. Did you notice that the culture was taken AFTER the pus was drained and rinsed with saline? It sure isn’t an accurate sample in my opinion.
    However, it was the yellowest pus I’ve ever seen!
    Thanks for the post.

  • This is a pretty gross looking abscess – surprising after ten days worth of antibiotics. Another surprising thing – the scalloped curtains and their relationship to the placement of the examining/procedure table. Somehow I think that if the fabric of the curtains were moistened and cultured, they would be growing many interesting types of bacteria. I just get the shivers thinking about it – after thinking of how many of these abscesses squirt all over the place. I just shivered again.

  • The doctor seemed to be using the swabs to probe rather than take a culture like we’ve seen on other videos. I was also surprised that they were rinsing/irrigating with saline. Other docs use hydrogen peroxide, right? I know it foams and bubbles. I was also worried about the cleanliness of that curtain so close to the patient. At least she was double gloved. 🙂

  • What unclelarry said! That pus was a bizarre colour & a surprisingly large amount for a site that didn’t seem to be very swollen. The 10 day course of antibiotics must not of had much affect. Thanks for another excellent post plush!

  • Great find Plush!

    There was so much pus it drained out of the leg without much squeezing. I was amazed at how fast the skin wrinkled as the pus was drained. It reminded me of “old lady fingers” when in the pool. LOL
    I am somewhat sure what they put on the gauze was some kind of antibiotic. Any ideas on what it was?

  • The doctor described the pus color perfectly in Spanish: It was the color of an egg yolk. Cock-a-doodle pus!

    I also liked how the skin around the cut got all puckered and wrinkled once the pus and pressure were released. It reminded me of how volcanos change shape following an eruption.

  • Plush, I bet urp is the same in any language!! After all this time and all these videos, part 2 made me hustle my way through it. I dunno why!! Thanks so much for finding this gem.

  • Ok, medicine is different in different countries, but I am thinking that the oral and or iv abx’s werent effective; maybe the bacteria had set up a slough barrier and the poor guy just couldn’t heal? Immunocompromised? Anywho, some docs are good enough that they can estimate to the centimeter by using swabs to measure wound edges (notice how she marked with her finger on the swab how deep it went lengthwise and sideways) then showed it to her **ZIT**istant, who was probably recording the measurements.
    The cotton probably was soaked in some abx; you inject sterile water into the little gl**ZIT** vial which has the powdered form of the abx. Usually you inject into the client or mix into an iv when pharmacy can’t do it. I am thinking that they wanted direct contact with the bacteria and a higher concentration that wasn’t safe to give systemically because of potential side effects? I don’t speak more thaan a few words of Spanish and this is just my thoughts on watching the video and having watched wound care specialists. Doing it this way gives more freedom than the wound vac machines…

  • Did it look like he had a second knee to anyone else lol. You know they could have used the swab to break up anything inside. My C section scar was infecting and blew up very big so when the doc re opened it instead of putting his finger in there as some do, he used a number of swabs to break up anything in there nd then rinsed it out with saline. and I was s**ZIT**ched back up again. But otherwise Yummy!!!!!

  • I love the workers and doctor’s sense of humor and the way they treated the patient. It seems like they care for their patients. Hope that guy gets better. It must hurt like the **ZIT**ens when the numbing wears off.

  • Could never eat undercooked eggs now I know why…have always had trouble eating eggs (basically chicken menses, right?) yuk yet here I am getting my rocks off on this stuff…
