I'm adopting a little girl from china in a month, I'm interested in breast feeding my new little girl but I have a very large problem. I'm sterile from Kemo -therapy and due to my breast cancer, I only have one breast. I also take drugs to reduce my chances of a re-lapse. I've already talked to my doctor, due to my low hormones (I've also gone though menopause early from my kemo) he not sure if I can even produce, he's looking into it for me. I'm also worried about my medication, I can't find any studies about the risk of my drug during breast feeding, should I quit using my drug until she weened?
I was wonder if anyone had any advice for me, is breast feeding a lost cause for someone like me? I really want to do this, since I can't have children of my own I feel like a failure as a women. I also want to do the best I can for my daughter.
