Abscess in breast, done x-ray. How to handle this situation?

Hi, My wife gave birth to a child on May 31, by C-Section. Rigth from after delivery, she was having problems breastfeeding the baby. Initially doctors claimed, baby is not able to hold the mother nipples or breast. After 20 days later, mother started complaining about pain in both the breasts. Doctors didn t considered this pain and ignored it as normal pain as this is her first birth to a child and she will have such discomfort. After few more days, mother started to feel more pain and she noticed lumps sort of things in her both the breast. Breasts were very tender and any slight touch to them were causing lot of pain to her. We have visited doctor again, but they have ignored it as milk ducts and give milk frequently and they will go off naturally. We changed to a different doctors as mother was not able to tollerate the pain. After visiting about 4 different doctors, finally 5th doctor showed little doubt about the presence of abscess and asked us to go for x-ray . After x-ray, she has confirmed presence of abscess on both breast with more than one abscess in each breast. She has given few tablets to take. With them in one week of time, one abscess location got burst and pus came off. We are not sure of if all the Pus gets drain off with tablets, also we are very concerned as she has got almost 4 abscess in her two breasts. Please adivce us how to handle this situation. What are the possible solutions/options we have and how do we approach this situation and get rid of this abscess. Becasue of acute pain, mother is not able to enjoy her first motherhood and she undergoing this pain since almost 1 month of time. Now she will be completing just 2 months after giving birth to the baby. Thanks in Advance. I really appreaciate for any advice or suggestions
