Re: Mastitis? Help!!!
That definitely sounds like mastitis, and it sounds like you were able to beat it back with the massage/heat/pump/compress/nurse routine. If this was a Monday, I'd say that you shouldn't call the doc unless the symptoms come back (fever, chills, aches and pains, red spot, painful breast), because it really sounds like you took care of the problem. But since it's Thursday, I think you want to call and make sure that you would be able to get a scrip for antibiotics over the weekend, if you see a resurgence of symptoms. I wouldn't want the mastitis to come roaring back on a Friday and then have you not be able to get treated until Monday!
