Sore boobs & underarm odour?

Hi Precious Sistas!

I am 11 weeks out but have had three post op complications whereby I have been readmitted to hospital, the worst for 9 days.

I kept my ovaries but now feel I am PMS for several weeks a month ... not so much my moods as I used to be a stark raving lunatic and then cry like a mad woman for about 3 days before my period ... I wasn't fit to live with ... LOL

My issue is my breasts hurt for weeks. I also have underarm odour more than I did and it happens when my boobs hurt. I am a clean freak and in the shower at least once a day and then seem to be washing with a facecloth another couple of times a day.

I know it is not uncommon to have underarm odour during certain hormonal changes in a woman's life but just wondered if anyone could relate to sore boobs or stinky underarms ... yuck!

Hugs and thanks for reading,

Sore boobs & underarm odour?

OMG! I thought this was just me!!! I've been washing and reapplying my deoderant a couple of times a day! And my boobs have been extremely tender... I didn't really have that before.

So, does anyone out there have any advice about dealing with this??? I've been at a loss... And soon, deoderant is going to get expensive

And this doesn't exactly make me feel pretty and feminine...

Sore boobs & underarm odour?

Yeah my breasts are killing me too!! So sore, half the time I don't wear a bra (I am able to get away with this with those shelf tanks). I find I sweat terribly as well, I've take to those body sprays and I soak through my shirts every where it's gross. Also find I'm suddenly getting acne. I feel like a slob!

Sore boobs & underarm odour?

I am off to buy a few new bras as my already big boobs have decided to get bigger ... I wouldn't mind if they were firm and perky and didn't fall into my armpits like a couple of fried eggs when I lay down!

Also, I need to have them measured so I am going to shower, put BO juice on and run to the store like a mad woman and then just before the woman measures me put more BO juice on ... hope I am okay and she doesn't pass out ...
GOSH I'M A SEXY BEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL

Hugs all round!

Tracy, I hear you sister! I'm already, ummm, blessed??? in the breast department and my bras are feeling a smidge tight. What the heck?!? Mine are none too perky either, after 2 kids... Ugh. Big, sore, fried egg boobs and B.O. Hubby still shows some interest in me... Bless him!

Good luck with your measurements today... Don't know if my good wishes should go to you, or the lady who has to measure Anyway, have fun shopping!!!

OK...all I can say is that y'all are cracking me up over here! I seeed to have lost weight in the boobage dept which isNOT cool! If I was going to lose weight from all of the BS that I've been through why couldn't have been from my donut sitting on booty?

Kara - I'd gladly share if I could... Unfortunately, it just doesn't work that way! I haven't actually gained any weight, so maybe everything is just "puffed up"! Lets hope, because seriously, the girls are getting out of control here!

Yep, I have sore breasts, too. They feel like they usually did when I was pms'ing. And my nipples hurt! No difference in body odor, though. Snif, snif....I think.

I'm three and a half weeks after my TAH, ovaries left.

Thank you all so very much for taking the time to share!

I am finding that the odour is only when I am PMS and then it goes away so it is hormonal for sure. Same thing for the sore boobs. I just went and bought a few new bras with better support in hopes that will help.

Hope you are all doing well and hugs all round!

I have the sore boobs and nipples too. So far, not the body odor(cross fingers).
