See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I recently started taking fluoxetine and hydroxyzine, and quit smoking 9 days ago. I noticed about 6 days ago that one of my nipples was expressing milky white fluid....not very much, but enough to scare me to death. It didn't leak, it had to be expressed. I called the doctor to find out if it was a side effect of the meds and was told it is not, and to come in for bloodwork. I recently aced a physical, and I'm wondering if maybe the fluid was due to some hormonal change due to my quitting smoking? I can't get into the dr's office until the 29th, and the fluid stopped about two days ago. My other breast has been feeling tender for the past couple of months though, and I'm worried if I don't go in to check it out I'll possibly miss an early notification of breast cancer. Cancer is rampant on both sides of my family, and I'm scared to death I've not quit smoking in time to save my health. Am I being nervous for nothing, should I cancel the appt, go, and has anyone else ever had this happen? There is no possibility of me being pregnant. Thank you in advance for any help you can give.
