I just had a needle biopsy on my right breast last Thursday to diagnose a tumor I found in my breast. Thankfully, it turned out to be a benign fibroadenoma, but now I am having problems with the incision site from the biopsy. I have developed a milk fistula at the incision, in which my incision is leaking breastmilk.
My OB says that there is nothing I can do to heal it other than wean, and it will continue to leak as long as I am lactating. I am obviously not satisfied with this answer, and I am looking for more information about how to deal with this. I am wondering if any of you out there has experience with a milk fistula and if you know of how to continue nursing with it, help it heal, etc. . .
Thanks in advance!
