Hi ALL again! :)
I had a lumpectomy done back on Jan. 28th. Had to go back for a re-excision Feb. 23. All clear margins - THANK GOD. But I had a question for you who have been through this before. My breast doesn't feel the same - not that I expect it to either - but it looks like there is a lot of scar tissue. When the biopsy was done to me, it left severe bruising, A LOT - all over. Plus I went back for those two surgeries, through same incision. When I touch it, it's hard (all around that area. 1/2 of the breast). I sometimes refuse to touch it afraid that it will fall off. The area is still bruised. Now the bruising is slowly moving around the breast. I've being wearing a support bra for a while but feel uncomfortable wearing it too. Any advice for me? Did you stop wearing regular bras? Now I don't want to wear them. Have you had this happened to you? If so, how long did it take for the breast to clear? Does your breast become somewhat soft again?
Thanks for your answers and support!
