It started over a year ago I had pain in my left breast, it came and went for a couple of days, I went to the dr. and she thought it was mastitis even though I was 40 and all my kids are adults. We tried several different antibiotics, none of them worked so she sent me to a breast specialist, they did mamograms, biopsy's, antibiotics, finally after no response to any of this she did surgery, thought that would be the end, nope had 2 more surgery's, I am still having abscess after abscess, while visiting my daughter in TN my last day there another abscess burst and I ended up in urgent care, the following day I went home, saw my dr. she said it looked like it was healing good, had a appt. the following week for a follow up, 2 days before my appt. another abscess burst and I ended up in the er where they had to cut me open again to drain out the fluid, which this time had a horrible oder to it, saw my dr. 2 days later and she had to do 2 punch biopsy's in the wound itself, a infectious disease dr. thinks it might be a form of tb of the skin so I will find out this Thursday, if the test comes back positive then I would go on a specail antibiotic for a year and that should cure it, if it comes back neg then they are talking about a mastectomy, now mind you this is not cancer but it just won't stop. I am so frustrated and depressed cause 90 percent of the time I am in pain and I am continuously draining, enough is enough and I can't seem to get any answers and I am driving myself crazy goggling this. Anyone else out there ever had this problem or know someon who did. Thanks
