Breast Pain

So for the last 2 weeks I have been getting a sharp shooting pain across my right breast. Sometimes like a cramp, sometimes like a bruise, sometimes aching, sometimes more than others, but mostly never the same pain…

It got to the point where I couldn’t pick up my son without grimacing and sometimes crying. So I decided that enough was enough and I booked an appointment at the doctors…I mean those that know me know that this is a pretty big step as it is (not to be forced to book an appointment, I mean)

I guess all I was expecting was to be told to take some painkillers, what I was not expecting was to be told that she had found something ‘nodular’ on the side nearest my armpit. I think from then I didn’t really listen. I heard things like, ‘not to worry’, ‘probably nothing’, ‘just a precaution’, but my head was spinning and, to be honest, still is.

My appointment has come through for the specialist breast unit at the hospital but I have to wait another week before I know anything & who knows how long after that. I am petrified, totally stressed out with worry & as the pain is there most of the time, thinking of nothing else (which is crazy considering my previous post about the FET cycle we are just embarking on)

I know I shouldn’t be worried as I am sure it will be fine, but I can’t help thinking the worse. Although I’m trying my hardest to hide all this worry from everyone around me.

Update: Everything was fine at the appointment…I was sent home without a ultrasound scan. I’m still getting the pain, but hopefully everything will be ok.
