I have been reading alot on this site and wanted to make sure that I put this on here to help others that are having the same synptoms! My breasts hurt so badly for so many years and after seeing 5 specialists getting the same answer from all of them that I had Fibercystic Breast Disease and that my breasts were going to have to be removed to stop the severe pain! I would see these doctors and after being examined I would dress and pay the doctors bill and leave! I didn't want to hear it!
Finally I got so bad that I went to see my OB/GYN and he sent me straight to this surgeon friend of his! I was finally having to face what these doctors were telling me! This surgeon did examine me and then told me (to my surprise) that I didn't need my breasts removed...I needed the male hormone Projestin shots! I thought this doc was crazy but let him give me the shot and I went home telling my DH of this shot and what this doc had told me! By the next morning the breast pain was subsiding and by noon it was completely gone! So every time I would have this pain start back (once a month) I would go in and get this shot and the pain would stop!
I wanted to post this for the ones that are going thru what I went thru! Surgery wasn't the answer for me this time and I have often wondered how many women had this unbarable pain and went thru this surgery!
I hope this helps someone that is going thru Fibercystic Breast Disease! My doc finally gave me the med so I could just give myself these shots as I needed them! I felt like a new person after getting rid of the pain, swelling, and the fever in my breasts!
If your going thru this please ask your doctor about trying these shots! Alot of doctors told me that these shots would make me grow hair on my chest and face! My reaction was "at least the pain wouldn't be there"! this was so painful til I knew something had to be done!:rolleyes:
