Okay, so here's an update....so now it's been 3 1/2 months since biopsy. I am still getting twinges of pain on that side. I still feel a little bump from one of the hematomas and if pressure is applied, it is sore. Not too bad but enough to know the soreness is there. Now with that being said, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but I did start my period 8 days early and it was lighter than usual and only lasted 4 1/2 days which normally mine go 6 days. Anyway, the discomfort on the side where my biposy was can be any where on that side nit just at the biopsy site. Really? This long afterwards? Will it ever get better?

Hi, well it's almost been 9 mo now since my biopsy and here's where I am at...
The pain has mostly gone but not always. I woke up last night because of the pain from laying on that side. I am premenopausal and wonder if hormone fluctuation can cause pain in the scar tissue that I was told that I had? Remember, I had two biopsies a week a part because they didn't get in the right area they needed to the first time. Does anyone feel that after getting this biopsy that one breast now feels lumpier than the other one? I did have my 6 month follow up. I now believe that the reason for the fibrocystic change was because of now being in premenopause which back then, I thought it was because of too much caffeine. Any thought? I just didn't think the tenderness/off and on pain would have been gone by now but then again, the fluctuating hormones may magnify pain.
