I have had excruciating left breast pain for about 3 weeks now. I have seen my doctor who has ordered a diagnostic mammogram and ultrasound. I'VE NEVER HAD A MAMMOGRAM! The idea of squeezing my breast makes me want to faint. I can barely touch it. The pain starts under my arm and goes through the breast and nipple. It has also been oozing a dark blood-like liquid. It feels like I'm being stabbed with needles in my nipple. When the pain became unbearable and so bad that it was making me nauseated I went to the ER, who couldn't help me . So now I wait...The "what-ifs" that are running through my head are horrific. I can't remember the last time I had a full night's sleep. I am just a mess. My husband has been a rock. He helps me dress, bath and anything else I need. I know the not knowing is hard for him too. He lost his mother to breast cancer after a 15 year fight. I am doing my best to hold it together when my family is around, just to keep their worry down a little less. But that means I'm crying alone at night when they are all in bed. I just needed to vent! Thanks to anyone who reads this...
