I am scheduled to have my gallbladder removed on Sept 20th . Just wondering what other moms have done to prepare for this or any other surgery in regards to breastfeeding. My surgeon gave me the earliest possible appointment in the day because I have an infant and told him I was pumping/nursing. All he told me was to make sure I pump enough so when I go in he has bottles (I giggled while thinking of my stash, hehe) Did you pump and dump for the 24 hrs post op? Or carried on like normal? How was your recovery? Were you able to pick up your baby or need someone to pick up and bring baby to you? How groggy were you for the rest of the day?
