Ok I got to thinking--My first mistake!
I have gotten some bad advise from my LC (no longer my LC) and one of the things she told me is.... "Because you have OALD you can apply a little pressure to the breast durring let down to prevent spraying/leaking." well Like a dummy I have been doing this. Could this be how my duct got plugged to begin with? I wasnt allowed to fully letdown and leak out the extra so it backed up??
I also noticed while pumping that my left side (the one with mastitis) only sprays from 1 hole when my right side sprays from 4-5 holes. How do I get it to spray more? I have massages, been taking RX, soaked in warm/hot water etc.
