Hello. I had a baby girl on 4/11/08. This is my second child and I have an overabundant milk supply as I did with the first. However, this baby is much different. She eats only every few hours where my first daughter seemed to eat all of the time! The first few days I was told not to pump because it would make the demand so much greater. After a few days I did pump as my breasts were becoming painful.
After pumping a few days later I found a lump under my armpit. I did mention this to the dr who said it was probably from nursing. He said it felt like a lymph node and if it didnt go away in two weeks he would send me to a breast surgeon. Is this common to get a lymph node from nursing? I will say that it is on the right side and this is the side that was most painful before I pumped. However, i have been on keflex(antibiotic) due to complications with my incision. So no infection should arise. I read a clogged duct should get better within 48 hours and it has been over that now so I am starting to worry quite a bit. Is two weeks a safe time to wait? Any advice you could give on this would be helpful.
