Hi, I recently as in 5 days ago had a breast abscess surgically removed at the hospital. It was an emergency type situation and was done straight away. Two questions, one, i am a smoker between 8-10 a day and was given no relief from this while in hospital. Upon leaving the doctor came to see me and said i am not to smoke and i replied i havent since being in here. He responsed never again. Will this do me damage if i have a few a day.. I know it is a bad habit but being required to stop so suddenly and then be told to never do it again is hard. The second is while in hospital i was on intensive amounts of antibiotics, i have ongoing problems with abscess in both breasts and while one really flaired up the other one has to. I have a small lump still in the one that was not removed, should the antibiotics i am still on heal the other one up as well???
