My daughter is now 6 weeks, i currently pump and about two weeks I became very sick, flu like symptoms, pain and fevers. Ob treated for mastitis, course of antibiotics but after two days still in a lot of pain and huge lump. Sent to see a breast surgeon last Friday who agreed mastitis and changed antibiotics and said I should STOP breastfeeding. I told her that wasn't an option for me and she stated that I would continue to have issues as long as I continue to breastfeeding/pumping. Yesterday after feeling ok for two days now I have extreme burning in nipple and lump is still there, I have to see surgeon again on Friday but I am very discouraged, is stopping the only answer?
