    Thanking God for my life, almost a three year survivor now. I still have some bumps in the road due to the fat necrosis. I will be glad when I'm done with the tamoxifen, too many side effects! This journey has taught me so much about myself, and whats really important in this one shot at life. Pick your battles wisely, and know that God is in charge of EVERYTHING, just follow his lead!

    I have seen my surgeon about the necrosis. He tried to aspirate the area, but it did not help. He recommends surgery, but I am going to try my best to ride it out. My radiation oncologist says it will get better with time. And it has gotten better, I pray to god for the day I can wear a bra without the fear of having pain. Can't take any compression on my breast due to the necrosis. What a journey this is, omg god is good!

      Yes, shortly after some fairly extensive breast surgery back in April. It was diagnosed with ultrasound. The largest are was drained with a fine needle aspiration but it filled back up. Treating it with heat and massage reduced it to a very small size and it is not painful.

      Talk to your surgeon. If it is isolated in one area, it should be easy to aspirate it (can be done right in the doctor's office). Even if it doesn't get all of it, it should reduce it enough to make it so it doesn't cause you pain and discomfort..
