    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): I am several weeks out from surgery and only have 11 out of 33 radiation treatments left andhave been complaining of alot of pain in my right breast for the last three weeks. radiation dr gave me antibotics just in case but claimed nothing he was doing would cause this. after week on antibotics and pain increasing he finally sent me back to my surgeon. she found that the removal of the tubal shaped cancer had left a pocket which had filled up with fluid. she drained it and sent it for testing and added more antibotics. still waiting on the test results but dr is unsure of what caused this. Pain is still ongoing but not quite as bad and intense.
