Hi there, i think you can relax a bit, but I am glad you are looking out for wife and baby.

The doctor, after  draining the breast infection, most likely gave your wife an antibiotic to take, as well as narcotic painkillers?

The pain should become less a few days after starting the antibiotic, and your wife probably took a few too many of the painkillers because she was in so much pain by the time you got to the hospital.

Since she is already in her 8th month of pregnancy, these pills most likely have not done any harm to her or the baby. i agree though with you that she needs to follow the doctor's instructions more closely now. it may help for you to reassure her and let her know that you realize this breast infection was /is very painful but that this will get much better soon, and you care too much about all of you to take the risk of harming anyone. I think if you say this to her in a gentle and caring way, rather than angry and  very worried way, your wife will respond better to you and listen more carefully?

If  you feel she is really abusing the drugs, and/or taking so many more than was advised, I would call the doctor and ask for advice. (or call/visit your regular doctor)

But for now be assured that  the doctor would not have prescribed anything harmful, and that it may be understandable if she 'overdid' it for a few days?

No, her condition is not cancer related.

Best wishes,

In the US we can buy benadry cream and pills over the counter, meaning without a doctor's prescription. (Dyphenhydramine is generic name) if you have those pills, 25 mg 2-3 times a day will take care of the itching. (or ask the doctor for an antihistamine, or buy one you have available where you live in a drugstore) Katrin
