Re: Been advised to stop breastfeeding 2yr3month old daughte
I also don't understand why your doctors think you should wean. Did they suggest an actual medical reason, or was it more of a social comment (e.g. child is "too old" to nurse or to need to nurse anymore), or more of a hypothetical concern (e.g. nursing could make you too tired in the aftermath of the surgery).
My mom had a hysterectomy a few years ago and it was very significant surgery. She was told there would be a 6 week recovery period, but I think it took her several months longer than that to feel completely well. Of course, she's in her 60s and you're probably a lot younger. But then she didn't have to pick up or chase after a toddler, either. One reason to consider preserving your nursing relationship is that I'm sure you'll need to take it easy after surgery, and find ways to entertain/distract/comfort your child without picking her up. Having her come up and nurse could help with that. Of course, it could also be rough on your incision...
