Unhappy I just got a boil cut open and drained, how long will i be out for?

it started as a little bug bite then it got infected and turned into a carbuncle or a boil and it hurt like a bitch. this was 4 days ago. and today, i got it numbed, cut open, and drained, and i must say, it felt like i gave birth to an elephant child. but the doctor prescribed me antibiotics so the cut doesnt get infected and some tylenol but i wanna know approx how long ill be out of action. hopefully itll be before next wednesday because im going to destin then
please help!!!!

give it a week to heal. did they put a wick in or a cloth type in the boil? if they did, that should keep it from closing up and cause any other problems. where was the boil at>?|

did they tell u to keep it moist? the antibiotic will do that but keeping the wound moist will help it heal with less scarring

Exactly what I mentioned about 1-2 weeks of healing. That wick or gauze that was inserted in the incision is to stop it from closing on its own. Since it was infected, it has to drain and close from the inside out. I see this a lot, it's my job. Just try to keep it clean and dry as good as you can.
