Get medical checkup: Most breast lumps can be felt as harder tumors but you need to use the flat part of your fingers rolled over the area of concern.

8 weeks post op hysterectomy everything but ovaries. Breasts swell and hurt ALL THE TIME. Not just with ovulation. Normal? Permanent? Why??!

8 weeks post op hysterectomy everything but ovaries. Breasts swell and hurt ALL THE TIME. Not just with ovulation. Normal? Permanent? Why??!

Contact your surgeon: Even though your ovaries are still present, the amount of circulating hormone may be disproportionate with estrogen only being secreted. This happens when ovulation is not ongoing and able to produce progesterone to balance the "equation" resulting in breast swelling. Contact your GYN surgeon and find out what is going on in your case.

Estrogen: As the cycle progresses the estrogen levels increase, that cause hypertrophy of the mammary tissue which increases tenderness. The Progesterone level rises after ovulation and that can cause nipple pain, itching, and sensitivity.
