Hello Ms. Ummu Abdoellah. Aamiin, thank you for your prayers and thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Mastitis is inflammation of the breast that is often caused by infection. If left unchecked, mastitis can form abscesses or collections of pus in the breast. Formed and large-sized abscesses need to be operated on to eliminate the source of infection, so that mastitis can be treated properly. Pain in the former operation usually disappears after 7-10 days after surgery. Sometimes, there is damage to the small nerve fibers in the breast during surgery, resulting in a sensation like being bitten by an ant like you feel. In general, this sensation is not dangerous and will improve by itself. However, if this sensation interferes with your activities, you can check it back to the surgeon who handled you before or another surgeon as long as you can tell the history of the surgery you underwent in 2013. Severe pain may also indicate a more serious condition. The surgeon will examine you directly and explain to you the possibility of the disorder. The doctor will explain what steps you need to take next. Antibiotics will also be given by the doctor.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
