Has anyone dealt with abscess(s) in/ around incision region needing to be lanced?

I had my tummy tuck just over 2 weeks ago. Thought I followed all the rules pretty closely, with the exception of maybe too much movement. Wore JP drains for a week, shortly after started developing redness, hardness under incision on one side. Doc had me come back and prescribed antibiotics. Slow draining started but after 3 days doc felt it wasn't looking better and had to recut an area within incision to drain it. HURT!!!! I'm now on two antibiotics and the doctor said that he hopes this took care of it but there might be another abscess building in a different area. Getting very stressed!!! My doctors been on top of things every step of the way but it's still discouraging and scary and I keep wondering if the drains came out too early (As much as I hated those GD things).
