I suffered from mastitis on the inner side of my right breast, against the chest wall away from the nipple, after the birth of my daughter. The infection went on for three weeks because my midwife kept saying 'you're fine, you're fine. hot water, massages, and breastfeeding will get it out with antibiotics.' After starting the antibiotics, the fever stopped, but the redness, pain, and swelling did not. I became concerned when this thick white/pale yellow fluid started leaking from a pore at the top of my breast from the skin. again i was told 'you're fine, you're fine. It's just milkfrom a shallow duct.' And decided to go to the emergency room regardless. It was a good thing i had. The mastitis had abscesses, i was close to becoming sepsic and the skin had started to become neucrotic from the infection that had reached it. I was forced to so breast feeding on the spot and i was rushed in to have the abscess drained and a tube put in place.
It's been two months now since, the incision is closed and healed, the redness is gone, but i still have shadowing lightly under the skin that looks kind of like the bruising from stretch marks and the area where the abscess has been is indented and there is a notable size difference between my breasts, the abscesses one being a cup size smaller than the other. My question is, will my breast be predominantly deformed like this?
