Re: Relactation In One Breast ONLY?
What you want to do does sound possible. It sounds like you know how to go about it, too: if baby will latch and nurse on that side, yahtzee! If not, renting a good pump and pumping frequently should get the milk to increase on that side. The fact that it never really went away means you'll probably have an easier time regaining a supply on the surgery breast.
You also put your finger on the one potential negative issue: if there's some sort of issue on that side that makes you more prone to mastitis or other problems, increasing milk on that side also ups your risk of experiencing problems again. I think the risk is probably lower than you think, though: mastitis is most common when a mom is starting out with breastfeeding and has and overabundant supply. You're probably not going to bring back a huge, troublesome supply, though, and I think that if you go slow and stay attuned to your body, your chances of having another bad experience are low.
