What happened with this? Are you still in pain?

I had a random weekend of pain a few months ago and i freaked out, almost went to the ER but it went away the next week. I hope yours does too!

melinda, nice to see your smiling face!  i went to the onc b/c after massaging the area i broke out in petechiae and i thought my platelets were low and needed a transfusion.  numbers are fine, no transfusion needed.  talked about the pain, plan was if it is still there in a week (tomorrow), we were going to start a work up.  i cancelled my appt for tomorrow because the pain is better, my boob still hurts but its not as bad as it was.  the stabbing pain is gone, now i just have a sore boob. i think my onc is jumping the gun starting a work up after a week of pain so i am going to hold off a few more weeks.  if the pain is still here in three weeks i will start the work up.

 see you in philly!

Is it swollen? Pink or red?  Could possibly be cellulitis or lymphedema. LE & cellulitis can cause pain. Hopefully the doctor will help you figure it out. NJ

incredible pain in right breast -- sudden. Deep breaths are painful. Touching it, moving certain way results in wincing pain. What is it??
