Re: Bruised like a peach

Tillykins, so pleased you called the BCN this morning however should the breast get red and hot you need to contact them again as this could be an infection.

Take good care, keep well and safe with a big hug Tili 🌈 x

Re: Bruised like a peach

Thank you for your help 😊

it was no worse this morning but I rang them anyway, everso slightly panicked and imagining them telling me to come straight in.   But they were very relaxed about it, asked me to check if it felt hot (no hotter than the other side) and ring again if it got worse 

im just telling myself not to get into a tizz, if it were bleeding or infected, it’d be much worse 

looking at the state now, I can’t imagine it ever looking normalish again!

Hi tillykins

you really need to get to the hose pita to get it seen to ASAP the pooling of blood is not good and will need treatment from your cancer phone the ward you were on when you had your op let them know your worried and scared, they will look after you, I know we all panic and get scared it cause we just don’t understand what our bodies have just gone through, you have had a major op, so ask for leaflets, this will help you understand more of what’s happening but don’t hesitate please let me know how you got on.

Dear tillykins,

Well done for getting this far, a very big step in your life. 🙏 this is very early days since your surgery, however I think you should call your Breast Cancer Nurse and have a chat about the bruising, just to make sure all’s well,  after my surgery I was also very bruised.

Take care, look after yourself.....feet up a good book one day at a time.

Big hug brave lady Tili 🌈x

Bruised like a peach

Hello 🙂

I hope this isn’t a stupid question!

I had surgery 4 days ago for DCIS.  I knew there’d be some bruising but tonight I’ve noticed a lot more, very purple, at the bottom of the breast.  Looks like pooled blood, it’s that red/purple 

Is that usual?
