I have had mastitis 3 times a clogged milk duct and a large (8cm) breast abscess. I had the abscess drained by a surgeon. I had a small incision and packing in the open wound. The surgeon told me to stop breast feeding completely. I didn't listen and just pumped and dumped. Had a follow up apt with surgeon on week post op. told him I was pumping and dumping and wasn't ready to stop nursing. Asked if I could start now and he said he wanted to see me in a week and we would talk then. My LC said she can't tell me to go against the md but gave me all the articles that said you should continue to nurse immediately after. What do you guys think about this?
