I completely feel like a cow. I have mastitis. Ouch!!!!! Really, ouch! It came on fast, and hurts incredibly bad. Yes, I know I am a ninny with a low tolerance to pain, but this really hurts. I started an antibiotic yesterday, dr. said it would get worse before it gets better and it did. But now I think things are better (or the pain pills are just taking effect). I had to take yesterday and today off work to empty my breast every 1-2 hours during the day and every 2-3 hours at night. (another reason I feel like a cow)
Dr. thinks it is just a odd thing- it usually happens in the early days of bf'ing when there are sores to allow bacteria in. It's been 7 months, and this hasnt happened yet. Hope it never happens again too! It seriously hurts bad!
