I have an infected cyst in my left armpit that is 6cms in diameter.
I saw a Doc today and she has given me antibiotics for the infection and is giving me an ultrasound this afternoon. She said then that she'll probably refer me to a general surgeon who will probably remove it in his office.
I am nervous about my breastfeeding relationship with DS. Is there a risk to my milk supply? The Doc said no but well, she would, wouldn't she?!
DS is 7mo and I'm a SAHM with no family in the US to help out. Wondering about picking him up, how long recovery will be etc...
I know this is a minor procedure but I'm never sick, never go to the Doc and, quite frankly, I don't trust them!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyone experienced anything similar??? Thanks!
