Stephanie I am so glad you are home and doing well. Now is not the time to be a hero. If you need the pills take them. Give yourself a few days and then try to get off of them. I got chills when I read your post knowing that I was to have the same major duct excision surgery last month. Up until yesterday were you still having discharge? If so what color and was it spontaneous or only upon manual expression. I am asking because I cancelled my surgery because we did not see anything in the dialated duct on u/s and the bleeding had stopped. This past week I noticed a small dot on my nice new bra (another story) and knew it was back. I expressed a little that night too. I had an MRI 2 1/2 weeks ago and they did not find any mass in the duct either. I am wondering now if I should have just had the surgery. I am going in for re-excision this month to remove the old mass that was confirmed a fibroadenoma, a new mass they found and then the atypical area they found on biopsy. Maybe if I tell her about the bleeding she will do the ductal excision at the same time. I have not had any since but that is how it has been; on and off.
I hope you have a good recovery and bounce back with b9 results. If your results are not so b9 then at least you know you have a place to turn to. You are right, this board is awesome.
