Still tender so will head back to gp. Going to go to the one that is also a lactation consultant this time. Last time I had to go to any dr as it was New Year's Eve and it was urgent as I had 39 degree fever! Wil also call around about the ultrasound therapy. I'm in Melbourne - any suggestions of a good place for those that live here?
Sometimes breasts can be bruised after lumps and mastitis and you have to be really gentle with them to prevent further injury. Good luck it does hurt!
Booked in to see the physio and see if they recommend ultrasound therapy. Can't wait for it to be gone!
Ultrasound therapy done and just in time ds was starting to fuss on that boob. Then luckily he fed on it afterwards. For those that did the therapy how many sessions did you do? They told me to do 2-3.
Only needed 2 as went as soon as i could and continued massage at home still
@wobblermummy when yours went away did it not feel tender at all? Is that how I know? Mine still feels slightly tender to touch. I can't tell if the lumps fully gone or not tho. I'm seeing my lactation consultant gp on thu hopefully she can tell me. The physio wasn't very good.
Was still a little sore, probably doesnt help with massaging. 3/4's of my boob turned into a rock and as soon as it was soft and wobbly again i knew it was ok. Id had a week of antibitics it started to clear then went rock hard again and more painful so went straight back to gp then physio as heard good things about ultrasound therapy. Next time ill book in to therapy same time as antibiotics
Mine has gone soft again but still something there. Not as soft as it was before. Yeh and don't know if it's still tender from massage or because it's still there.
Did you go back on antibiotics or just do the therapy? Had my last dose today and don't think I'll continue another dose. Can't be good for me and the infection and my temperature has gone. Physio said I shouldn't do another round.
