This is my first time to post here. I have a 14 mo. old nursling and have no plans to wean. I had a mammogram yesterday and the doctor wants to do a biopsy on one breast. She said it's nothing to panic about but I'm very high risk so they want to be certain. She suggested they schedule for one month from now so I have time to wean. I pushed for more information re. why I would have to wean and the two answers I received were so images would be clearer (for additional ultrasounds and mammograms, I assume) and to reduce risk of infection re. the biopsy.
I'd like to continue to nurse as 1) I'm actually not worried about what showed up on the mammogram and don't think it's going to actually be anything of concern (how's that for a positive attitude!) and 2) this isn't how I imagined our nursing relationship to end.
So, I am looking for come actual 'evidence' I can present to the doctor/hospital in support of nursing before, after, etc. a needle biopsy.
