¡Alerta! complicación médica de una mami [SPA-ENG]

Hola hermosa comunidad de #motherhood. Hoy quiero seguir comentando sobre este proceso paulatino en el que he atravesado la lactancia. Luego de una semana de destetar a mi pequeño de 2 años, empecé a sentir una ligera molestia en mi seno izquierdo. Poco a poco se torno molesto pero con los miles de quehaceres y obligaciones de mi día a día honestamente he dejado que mi salud pase a segundo plano (yo se que no debo hacer eso) y hoy fue el día que lo aprendí de la manera más dura.

Hello beautiful #motherhood community. Today I want to continue commenting on this gradual process I've been going through with breastfeeding. After a week of weaning my 2 year old, I started to feel a slight discomfort in my left breast. Little by little it became annoying but with the thousands of chores and obligations of my day to day life I have honestly let my health take a back seat (I know I shouldn't do that) and today was the day I learned that the hard way.

Como dije, empecé a sentir un ligero dolor en mi seno izquierdo que cada día era aun mas molesto. Lo único que hice para aliviarlo fue tratar de no tocarlo, colocar el brasier con cuidado y dormir de mi lado derecho. Debo admitir que fue uno de los más grandes descuidos a mi salud. Hoy, teniendo 3 días con el dolor, en plena tarde, sentí mi seno caliente, pasaba mis dedos suavemente por la silueta de mismo y sentía un dolor inexplicable, empecé con cuidado a explorarme (ya que evitaba tocarlo); un miedo entró en mi cuando pude notar aquella bola del tamaño de un huevo, dura, caliente y dolorosa. Me asusté, el dolor era inaguantable hasta el punto de ser yo misma la que tomara la decisión de ir a urgencias a que me chequearan.

As I said, I started to feel a slight pain in my left breast that every day was even more annoying. The only thing I did to alleviate it was to try not to touch it, put my bra on carefully and sleep on my right side. I must admit that it was one of the biggest oversights to my health. Today, having 3 days with the pain, in the middle of the afternoon, I felt my breast hot, I ran my fingers gently along the silhouette of it and felt an unexplainable pain, I carefully started to explore myself (since I avoided touching it); a fear entered me when I could notice that ball the size of an egg, hard, hot and painful. I got scared, the pain was unbearable to the point that I was the one who made the decision to go to the emergency room to be checked.

Mi esposo justo se encontraba en casa, me llevó de inmediato, él se vestía mientras yo alistaba a santiago para llevarlo con la niñera. La sensación de calor y el dolor eran insoportables, debía hacer algo de inmediato. Al llegar, espere un momento sentada mientras me atendían. Al ser mi turno, de inmediato el médico me pidió una revisión; con mucho cuidado me tocó mientras me preguntaba cuantos días tenía sintiendo el dolor, le respondí que 3 hasta que el día de hoy se hizo tan molesto que tuve que venir aquí. Me dijo: "tus glándulas galactoferas están sólo inflamadas, por suerte llegaste a tiempo, estabas creando una mastitis" mi cara de asombro supongo que no la pude disimularla, todo por culpa de la inexperiencia y las consecuencias que acarrea pasar por el destete.

My husband was just at home, he took me immediately, he was getting dressed while I was getting ready to take him to the nanny. The sensation of heat and pain was unbearable, I had to do something immediately. When I arrived, I sat for a moment while I was being attended to. When it was my turn, the doctor immediately asked me for a check-up; very carefully he touched me while he asked me how many days I had been feeling the pain, I answered 3 until today it became so annoying that I had to come here. He told me: "your galacto glands are just swollen, luckily you arrived on time, you were creating a mastitis" my astonished face I guess I could not hide it, all because of inexperience and the consequences of going through weaning.

Para mi suerte, no era nada grave, no estaba tan avanzada como para recetar antibióticos. El médico hizo la receta colocando medicina para el dolor y compresas de agua de manzanilla, colocarlas en mi seno durante 20 minutos, esto para que la glándula desinflame un poco para posteriormente extraerme manualmente la leche. No espere un momento, al llegar a casa del ambulatorio, realicé todo a pie de la receta. Efectivamente, no sabía que tenía tanta leche materna albergada en mi seno, me extraje 5oz. Inmadiatamente sentí el alivio en mi seno sumando los efectos del analgésico me sentí bien luego de 2 veces que me coloqué las compresas más la extracción. En 2 horas sentí la diferencia, el alivio era bastante notable, bajó la temperatura del seno. Me sentí bien.

Luckily for me, it was nothing serious, I was not too advanced to prescribe antibiotics. The doctor prescribed pain medicine and chamomile water compresses to be placed on my breast for 20 minutes, so that the gland would deflate a little and then I could manually express my milk. I did not wait a moment, when I got home from the clinic, I did everything according to the prescription. Indeed, I did not know that I had so much breast milk stored in my breast, I expressed 5oz. Immediately I felt the relief in my breast plus the effects of the painkiller, I felt good after 2 times I applied the compresses plus the pumping. Within 2 hours I felt the difference, the relief was quite noticeable, the breast temperature went down. I felt good.

Por un lado, me siento agradecida que este pequeño problema médico no haya pasado a mayores y no necesité medicamento abrasivo como antibióticos, hubiese sido fatal para mi salud. Por otro lado aprendí que no debo sentirme realmente mal para ir al médico, soy mamá, debo estar bien para hacerme cargo de mi bebé, nadie más lo cuidará como yo. Lo más importante es que aprendí la lección; los descuidos no son buenos, menos si esta en juego la salud.

On the one hand, I am grateful that this little medical problem did not become a big one and I did not need any antibiotics, it would have been fatal for my health. On the other hand I learned that I don't have to feel really bad to go to the doctor, I am a mom, I have to be well enough to take care of my baby, no one else will take care of him like me. The most important thing is that I learned the lesson; carelessness is not good, especially if health is at stake.
