Hello,
It possible that you may have gaseous distension, hernia etc. I suggest you get an ultrasound/ xray standing of the abdomen. It could also be just fat tissue.
Get examined by a doctor. Make sure your bowel movements are regular.

Hi I m 28 years old and my baby is 3.5 months old now (delivered on 4th Nov 2013). I had a breast abscess, I&D was done in December 2013 (when my baby was 4 weeks old). I want to breast feed my baby but milk supply is very very low i tried galact granules then lactare capsules but nothing helped. please suggest me how can I improve my milk supply. and is it safe to try increasing breast milk as I had breast abscess

Dear member,
Thanks for writing to healthcare magic.
Breast abscess is due to infection.
Try feeding As often as possible. If your baby is gaining weight then your milk supply is sufficient. Continue galact granules or lactonic granules.
Thanks

I had a car accident on November 4th and among several serious injuries (rupture of mesenteric arterie, lung collapse, knee bruise and tear) I also had a bruise and lump in my left breast. An ultrasound was done in January revealing an hematoma and fluid in the breast. Nothing was prescribed. Now,seven months later I developed lots of pain in the same area of the breast, a red rash and the lump is still there. Gone for another ultrasound. They say I have an abcess and infection, They prescribed pain medication (hidrocodone). Have not heard if I should have antibiotic or some drainage of the lump. It hurts a lot. Ice helps. Is this XXXXXXX ? What should be the treatment.? Why this happenned?
