About Me: Female, 48, Whyalla, Australia, member since Nov 2009
Just recently moved to South Australia from Lincolnshire UK with my Hubby.
Massive wrench leaving my 2 boys (23 & 25), friends, family & patients behind!
[More] I was a self employed holistic therapist.
I had an excisional biopsy on 10/21 and the results were benign. However about two weeks later, the area where the lump was taken out became red and sore. I went back to the breast surgeon and they sent me to the breast center at the hospital where the pathologist performed a FNA and removed 5 large syringes full of blood and pus from the area, the fluid was benign but infected. I am on antibiotics for 10 days but it is starting to hurt again so I will have to go back. To date I have not had any blood tests (none at all!) no chest x-rays, nor have I been referred for any further treatment. Keep me posted on your status. Thanks for replying.
