My Name is Earl actress, Jaime Pressly, has opened up about having a mastectomy following a mastitis diagnosis.
The actress, who gave birth to son, Dezi, in 2007, described on The Talk how she did not realise just how serious the issue was at first: “I have a high threshold for pain – I was a dancer for 25 years. And when I had my son, I got mastitis but I didn’t know. I just thought it was normal breastfeeding pain.”
Then, in 2011, four years after welcoming her son into the world, Jaime was worried when she found lumps in her breasts. Fearing the worst, she went to the doctor, and later underwent a mastectomy: “He took the scar tissue out of this and then six months later – because when you open it spread – I had to go back and do this one... I still have some breast tissue left but [they had to do] almost a full mastectomy ... Thank God it wasn’t [cancer].”
