Post-Op Breast Biopsy pain
Just wondering appox. how long does Post-op Breast Biopsy Pain usually last.........think I may have overdid it yesterday as I had a Needle Localization Breast Biopsy done Fri. 8/5.......& I was scheduled to work this past weekend.........surgeon who did this biopsy said it was up to me about work.....I should explain I am a Housekeeper in our local hospital.....but it really did take me by suprise when he told me it was up to me & never mentioned a follow-up.............oh by the way surgeon said everything looked good.
Thank you for your info.......the incision is about 5 inches below my left breast & verrrrrrrrrry painful today!

Dear DustyAngel57:  Pain can vary dramatically from person to person.  It can be increased if there is infection, bruising, scarring or injury.  If there is excessive redness, any drainage, if it feels warm to touch, or if you have a fever, you should call right away.  Otherwise, you may want to let your doctor know of the pain and see if this is within his/her expectation of what you should be experiencing.  He/She may also recommend a medication to help relieve the pain.
