Went to the doctors yesterday as I have an ongoing Mastitis problem. I have been taking anti-inflammatorys for the past two weeks which has taken the heat out of my breast, but the pain is still very much there. Saw a different doctor from the one two weeks ago who has now prescribed anti-biotics and painkillers for the ache and suggested I keep a pain diary.
On a scale of 1 to 10, the pain is around 6 or 7 today.
Although he couldn't feel any lumps or abscesses, he felt a definite "thickening". He has now referred me for a mammagram and an ultrasound so I am now waiting for an appointment at Singleton Hospital.
Someone shoot me!
