I am considering undergoing a sleeve gastrectomy bariatric surgery. My daughter is currently breastfeeding at 5.50 months. She will be 7-8 months old when I have the surgery. My insurance company recommends that I do not have the surgery until I am finished breastfeeding; however, my surgeon says it is safe as long as I do not breastfeed until all the anesthetics and pain meds wear off. They want me to store my milk ahead of time and pump and dump after to maintain my supply. I am worried that with all the immediate weight loss there will be a flood of toxins releasing from my fat cells into my milk supply. My surgeon says that he has a patient that breastfed after the surgery and her baby is fine. I have asked to meet this mom before I have my surgery. Is there anyone else that has undergone bariatric surgery while breastfeeding?
