Hello, I'm going to be having an appendectomy and was wondering if anyone else has had a similar situation. DS is 9 mo, takes some solids but still nursing 6-8x per 24 hours. My surgeon told me to pump & dump for 24 hours post-surgery, but the nurse who scheduled me said I can pump one time after the anesthesia wears off and then it's fine to nurse. I would definitely prefer not to pump & dump for 24 hours as DS rarely takes a bottle and will not be happy if he can't nurse at night. I have a feeling the doctor was just being conservative, but I feel a bit nervous about not following his instructions. Any advice?
