Menses ; breast milk: It is not uncommon to have an absence of your period while breastfeeding. However, ovulation can still occur as well as pregnancy. Check a pregnancy test first and foremost, then when breast feeding has ceased your period will return if you are not pregnant. ...Read more

Needs exam...: It sounds like she needs to be examined again - could be that the sores have gotten secondarily affected and she needs antibiotics; however, that is impossible to say in a "virtual" format. A physician needs to examine her and come up with a new plan. ...Read more

What can ask dr @ core biopisy for large, very painful, & abnormal breast mass? Can dr tell me anything helpful feeling overwhelmed and confused

What can ask dr @ core biopisy for large, very painful, & abnormal breast mass? Can dr tell me anything helpful feeling overwhelmed and confused

The doctor: who performs the core biopsy may be able to discuss the probability that the mass is malignant based on the imaging features. However, he/she will not be able to tell you anything more regarding the biopsy results. The specimens cannot be reliably assessed visually, other than a determination that the samples are sufficient for the pathologist to analyze. The pathologist needs to analyze them. ...Read more

I'm breast feeding my problem with that is that she dosnt seem to get full with the breast milk I make, so that's when I try formula, but the thing is that I get confused on how many oz she's actually eating. How do I no when she's full and i'm not over

Not the way to go: Your breasts and body are programmed to produce the proper amount of milk. If you supplement your baby with formula, she will not suckle as long with you and you will, as a consequence, produce less milk. There is a very intricate mechanism in your body to regulate the proper amount of milk production. Please discuss this with your pediatrician for reinforcement of this issue and for reassurance. ...Read more

What is a pedicled flap for breast reconstruction? I've been researching my options for breast reconstruction surgery and i'm confused by the different kinds of flaps the surgeon can use. I'm especially unsure what is a pedicled flap, and how is it differ

What is a pedicled flap for breast reconstruction? I've been researching my options for breast reconstruction surgery and i'm confused by the different kinds of flaps the surgeon can use. I'm especially unsure what is a pedicled flap, and how is it differ

A : A pedicled flap is a flap that has a blood supply connected to the flap from its original site. Examples include the pedicled tram flap, which takes the rectus abdominus muscle (or sit-up muscle) with it, containing the superior deep epigastric artery, and the latissimus dorsi myocutanous flap, which carries the thoracodorsal artery along with the latissimus muscle. The tram flap is used to create a breast out of abdominal skin and fat, while the latissimus flap is used to provide muscle and skin coverage over an expander or implant. This is espiecially useful in a patient who has had radiation. A free flap is a flap that has its original blood supply divided. The artery (and vein) to the flap is then connected to a new blood supply under the microscope. The new blood supply is usually the internal mammary artery, which runs lateral to the sternum or breast bone. The flap vessel used is the deep inferior epigastric pedicle (diep flap). This bloode vessel comes from below the abdomen and doesn't run through the sit-up muscle. The purpose of a free flap in breast reconstruction is to improve circulation, and to prevent the side effects resulting from removing the sit-up muscle from the abdominal wall, which can lead to hernia or bulging. The free flap is a complicated procedure that should be done by a surgeon who has ecperience with this technique. ...Read more

Fibrocystic breast disease. Very confused about effect of coffee?

Fibrocystic breast disease. Very confused about effect of coffee?

Me too!: Fibrocystic changes are a spectrum of pathologic findings seen on biopsy. This has morphed into a clinical term for "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue and/or dense tissue seen on mammography. This is not a disease, just a variant of normal. While caffeine has been implicated as a possible irritant, the proof is iffy, at best. I preach moderation unless one has severe breast pain. ...Read more

For the past 4/5days my breasts have been sore, today they have been itchy, my period is 5days late im confused what could be wrong?

Don’t guess.: Take a test.  they are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period.  if you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
