I have Crohn's Disease and had a CT scan today. I was told not to nurse for 24 hours from the time they injected the contrast (iodine). Everything I've read supports this statement, but I just wanted to double-check. I know that a lot of "no-no's" have been debunked as myths, but this one still seems to be valid. I guess it has something to do with the fact that many people are allergic to iodine (shellfish, etc.) and they don't want to trigger something in the baby if she has an allergy.
Anyone have any idea about this? I'm actually welcoming the break as I have a rotten cold that I think might be bronchitis as well, and I need rest. DH has gladly volunteered to have a slumber party with Gwen tonight so that I can just pump at midnight and 4am and get a decent night's rest.
