Ok, has anyone had this happen???
I had my Core Biopsy on July 19th. Handled the procedure well. Hardly any bruising. No bleeding afterwards, No swelling. Minimal pain that was totally gone in less than 4 days. Thought I was out of the woods as far as that procedure goes.
Not so much :(
A week afterwards, the pain in the CB site began steadily throbbing, aching, and increasing in intensity.
Three weeks later it is really painful. I cannot put pressure on it. Bras are out of the question. Just sitting in a chair the ache is intense.
I live with Chronic Pain due to other medical conditions daily, have done so for past 30 years.
I'm not a wuss by any means, yet this pain is hard to ignore.
I am scheduled for my Lumpectomy on Aug 30th.
I talked with my Cancer Center triage RN today - she said it's just a "hematoma" and I'll be fine. Unless it's swelling, hot to the touch, etc it's not anything to be concerned about.
I want to believe her, but I'm having a hard time. My mind is freaking out and this isn't usual for me.
My mind says pain doesn't increase after a procedure, it gets better....not worse....but I'm new to the BC world.
Can anyone help me trust them and know I don't need to be alarmed? Or am I right to be worried?????
Hugs and healing to all! <3
