Hi, I'm Lisa,
I had a core biopsy done last month on both bresats and clips were inserted to prepare for surgery. During the biopsy an aspirate of fluid was taken from a nodule just under the skin. It containing gram negative rodes. I have developed an abcess at the biopsy site which has opened and draining. I have been on 900mg of clindamyacin for a week and it's getting better. My concerns are that I am and have had pain in my breast ever since the biopsy. Could this be pain from clips inserted? Also, the infection seems much deeper in my breast, the lump was superficial. Could there have been contamination to deeper tissue during my biopsy?
