Hey its me again. i was wondering if the girls that have had a reduction had the same problem that i am having right now. all of a sudden 5 months later i have this pain where the underneath scar is. its red and it hurts when i touch it. any idea what it could be and do you think the doc will see me now that i am out of his care. i am thinking ingrown hair or a stitch that never disolved. thanks ladies for your input.

Hi Jackie!
I bet it is one of those that you mentioned. I had a stitch like that months later, kind of "come out" I guess as the body healed together. I am a bit concerned though that it is red and hurts. Kind of sounds infected. Not sure how that would happen, unless maybe it just never healed totally shut. I would at least contact your family doctor about it. I have lots of scar tissue, here and there around my scars, but never had anything that got like what you mention.
Good luck and let us know how it goes ~

thanks for your input. well i guess it wasnt anything serious because it stopped hurting and its not red anymore. there is a tiny bump but its mostly gone now. guess it must have been a pimple. = )

well good to hear. Yes, it could have been just that :). I am wondering...do you have numbness still? I do somewhat on the sides and a little around the front. I thought someday that would go away, but after 3 1/2 years, nope. It really doesn't bother me and I have plenty of feeling in the nipples. It is just weird to have that. And when my boobs get that achy before period feeling, that is really weird!! But heading into my 53rd birthday, I am seeing a change in that, so must be in the menopause loop! Yeah, I think..ha ha!!

Yes, the not having a period idea is tantalizing....but you just never know when you will be spotting, so that is irritating. I guess I am one of a few that are still numb. I think if it was going to come back, it would have happened by now. It is just weird.
Glad the bump is gone.... :)

thats probably what it was. the under wire still bothers me so i stopped wearing them and wear wire free or sports bras and it went away after a few days. no temp so i think i am all better. just got a little freaked out but im good now.

I'm glad to hear that things are better Jackie. Those underwires can be painful for some of us.
