    Abcess drainage

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had radiation for 3 weeks, got really sunburnt. Kept asking my dr about it,she just said to try these creams. Kept getting worse and I kept asking. Then last weekend my breast got really hard, red and swollen. Went to ER, they admitted me and 1 day later I had surgery. Had 3 pus pockets 6cm x 6cm, which showed up on my mammogram but 5 dr's did nothing about it. So I am on antibiotics for 3 weeks with 3 drains in my breast. Was on so many meds I don't remember much of the week but I do remember them inserting 2 needles into my breast to drain it without success
