I have a plugged milk duct that turned into mastitis. I took antibiotics. The mastitis is gone but the plugged duct remains. It doesn't hurt, it's just a lump. My question (that I can't find the answer ANYWHERE to) is what is going to happen??? Will my body eventually reabsorb the milk? Will I get mastitis again? Will it turn into an abscess even though I've been treated with antibiotics? Has anyone had an experience like this before? The kicker is that I'm ready to stop BF so I'm basically sitting around waiting for this thing to go away before I can stop.... I am planning to put in (another) call to my Dr. tomorrow. They keep telling me it will go away... and it's not going away... (PS I've tried all the usual tricks- heat, massage, baby, pump, lecithin, cabbage, hot shower, etc). Looking for someone with a similar experience or some reassurance that I'm not going to die.
ETA: I have been on antibiotics/had this blockage for 1 week
