Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Breast Pain

These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An indi vidual patient is always advised to consult their own physician.

[posted 08/18/1999]
Question: I had a hyesterectomy, including ovary removal. My breasts are now so sore that I nearly need to hold them, because the pain of their weight is intense. I am a size C cup.
The doctor told me that this pain would leave. I've been on the drug for a month, and the pain has only gotten worse. The doctor said I should wait longer for the pain to subside.
How long is long enough? In reading the info in this package, this drug does not say it should be perscribed for a woman who has had a hyesterectomy. I don't know who to ask, and I am scared.
What do I do? Is there another product I can ask my doctor to perscribe for me?

Answer: What drug are you taking? If estrogen, this is notorious for causing breast enlargement and tenderness.
