Can engorgement bruise your breast?
Yesterday DD2 slept through from 8 till 5.00. That in itself should be a woo-hoo but my left breast has turned it into a Boo-hoo.
Having not been fed from in 11 hours I woke up to a dull ache and sore nipple on my left side, my right was very full but not sore. It took 2 feeds to empty them both and since then my left breast has been tender to the touch, like it has been bruised inside, even when it is empty. I don't think I have mastitis as there are no lumps, heat or redness anywhere and I feel fine.
So, I was wondering, is it possible to bruise your breast internally through engorgement or should I go see someone if it doesn't settle down?
If you can only be good at one thing, be good at lying, then you can be good at everything.
