Jaime Pressly has opened up about having an "almost full mastectomy."
The Jennifer Falls actress revealed she noticed lumps forming in her breasts four years after she was first diagnosed with Mastitis - an inflammation in the mammary glad that often results from a bacterial infection related to breastfeeding. She developed a severe form of the benign disorder after welcoming her seven-year-old son, Dezi, with former fiance Eric Cubiche into the world in 2007, and initially assumed she was suffering from "regular breastfeeding pain."
"I had something that happened to me years ago -- when I had my son I got mastitis, but I didn't know because I thought it was just regular breastfeeding pain," The 37-year-old star told The Talk.
After having scar tissue removed from one breast, the blonde beauty's doctors informed her that the disorder had spread and she was forced to remove tissue from her other breast: "[I had] almost [a] full mastectomy. I still have some breast tissue left, just from the mastitis because it mutated into something else because it sat dormant for a while. But it was the craziest thing. Thank God it wasn't [cancer]."

The 47-year-old actress insists she's not stressing over her postpartum pounds after welcoming her second child Maceo-Robert, whom she has with her husband Olivier Martinez, into the world last October.

And I'm working on the TV show [Extant]. It's a new grind, it's a new rhythm. We're trying to get used to that. [But] we're managing," she explained.
