I am 5 wpo and my right breast hurts a lot! It's a continuous ache and my nipple itches. Dull and intense ache in the center of my breast. Is it normal to still have ongoing pain 5 weeks out? I don't see my doc again for couple more weeks and I don't want to bug his office... again! (I had TT revision that I had a few minor issues with.)
Yes it can be very normal. The itching makes me think of nerve type pain which is often described as a zinger or pins and needles or gnawing. Try heat and massage and ibuprofen. If that doesn't help I will sometimes do low dose Neurontin/gabapentin which seems to get those little nerves damped down some.
You're not bothering the office, that's what they're there for. Go ahead and call!
I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
