Re: Breast Infection?

The first time I had it I was weaning my son. Woke up one morning thinking I had the flu. Full on fever and shivering which progressed to vomiting and diarrhoea. On the third night I collapsed in the bathroom. I had full on bacterial septacemia, spent 3 days in ICU and two weeks in hospital total. I also developed an abcess where the ducts were plugged and I had those needle aspirated. I now have scar tissue and compromised supply in that breast.
Now when I get pugged ducts and any kind of fever I go to the doctor immediately. You do not want to end up in hospital.
