    Should be a definition of love. I now have one breast twice the size of the other and every time I feeddd it feels like razor blades :, (

    I hope to see a doctor today asi feel dreadful. My whole body aches and I am so weak . my head is pounding. I keep massaging the sore spot but it's not helping.

    Massive hugs I know how you are feeling, getting baby to feed as much as possible from that boob even though its agony and massage the boob at the same time, also try a bath with a hot flannel on your boob while expressing, this helps, plenty of fluids and bed rest cleared it up in 24 hours for me. Hope you feel better soon xx

    Thanks :)

    On antibiotics now :( only seem to express 1/4 ounce.

    Tried massage and so far no difference. I worry my supply in that breast is diminishing.
