In the locker room, I undressed my eyes quietly from the other woman and disturbed me.
He was older than me. But still, I would have expected more in a bright, iridescent place full of mammography and paper clot
hes. I just kept fighting the feeling that I didn’t belong here.
“We’re just going to do some tests and we’ll be sure, orum my doctor said, frowning slightly. I tried not to think.
I tried to postpone this for years, but after interviewing a mother who discovered her own breast cancer while breastfeeding, I planned my own examination as soon as I wrote the last word of this article.
We all talk about how breastfeeding changes our bodies, ruins our breasts, gives us cracks when we’re cheerful. However, many of us know what is really normal about the effects of breastfeeding on us?
I’m not sure I really know what’s going to happen. So when I couldn’t look at my fourth baby on my right side, I told myself it was normal because of pain and a nipple that disappeared all night long.
Just breastfeeding should be something, I thought.
Apparently, this is not a normal breastfeeding issue, nor is it normal for me to chew – a total of 20 times, including something very serious that
I need to be hospitalized for. As he continued to fight pain for breastfeeding, it was made even more difficult by something so embarrassing, I didn’t even want to pretend it was happening to me: my nipple was completely reversed.
If he’s torturing that I’ve never experienced it, I’m trying to feed a baby from the nipple that does n’t exist. I cried and I fear every feeding. I was always in a lot of pain, crying and even bleeding.
But I kept telling myself it was normal, a small sacrifice for the beauty and benefit of breastfeeding.
Symptoms began early in the motherhood and worsened in each baby – until I finally stopped looking at the right side together with my fourth child.
I was amazed at the ability of my body to loosen up a little slack and my daughter developed like a champion and gained weight.
But my body was officially damaged.
The truth is, I was afraid to admit I had an inverted nipple, because I was afraid of what that would mean. But when I learned that a newly inverted nipple may be a sign of cancer,
I finally planned a check to confront my fears. I was never so scared, I lay on the table, waiting for the doctor to get the results. As you can see, I still don’t have a definite answer. Long story short, all the reasons are that I’ve been so damaged in my milk canals that there’s scar tissue that acts like a tumor and turns my nipples upside down.
I’d be lying if I told you it wasn’t lifeless to wonder what was wrong and wonder if it was cancer. Although doctors made it clear that they were not immediately concerned, I was advised to take a mammogram every six months in the case of “mud ((yes, it was a real term used by my doctor). It’s not cancer on ultrasound.
But this journ
ey is coming to an end, and after I made too much sacrifice to do the “right” thing and breastfeeded my babies, I was quite upset because I stopped wondering whether I was “normal”. It’s not something I’m talking about, but breastfeeding, cliché, cliché, “Oh, they’re hanging out too much now! Daha It could ruin more breasts than it did.
My life was greatly affected by my marriage and my self-worth – not to mention that this fear that I held in my head could be more wrong.
The moral of the story is that breastfeeding should not be cruelly painful or cause your breasts to deform. A little flabby?
Of course, this is completely normal. But afraid to feed your own baby? Can’t you get rid of mastitis? Suddenly inverted nipples? Bleeding, painful nipples? Not necessarily normal. Do as I did and do not push the pain without first checking with your doctor.
