    Yeah. If they can't tell you what's in the IV, don't let them give it to you. That's a crock. I think they just don't want to bother looking anything up or going to the effort of telling you what they use, so they're throwing the 24-hour thing at you.

    I hope you get it figured out!!

    That's exactly it. I mean she said it's the anist. dr that does it, so she doesn't know what it is. So when she asked the Dr she came back to tell me 24 hours. I am so tired of asking and getting the same answer. I think I'll just go in, when the dr gives me the stuff, tell him to write it down and then look it up. If it's 24 hours like they say, I'll do that, if it's something that can wear off sooner, then I'll know because I've looked it up. I hate fighting with doctors.

    Yeah, that's crazy. Maybe they'd give you the number for the anesthesiologist and you could ask them directly.

    IF THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT'S BEING GIVEN TO YOU HOW CAN THEY KNOW YOU HAVE TO WAIT 24 HOURS!?

    I'm pretty sure I didn't nurse at all during the day, and we put her to sleep some other way, probably rocking. And then she did sleep pretty well, so when it was early morning, I just gave in and nursed her. I did get a prescription for the bf safe Lortab. I'm so sorry you have to deal with this as well, but your nursling is a bit older, right? So I think you will make out just fine. Not ideal, but we made it through without much of an issue. Good luck Mangai!!

    Do you HAVE to be put under? I just got mine out less than 2 months ago and was given gas instead. I wasn't even offered the choice of being put under. I'm not sure how they decide for each person though. I was just given motrin for pain meds. I was surprised he didn't say anything negative about nursing like most seem to! Are they bad and need to come out now? Maybe you could wait til after she's weaned? I would have just waited if it affected nursing!!

    The 24 hours pump and dump rule is just a generic precaution. Despite my asking and asking at gastroenterology and obstetrics/gynecology when I had an upper endoscopy, that's the only answer anyone would give me. I didn't believe them and had them write down the names of the drugs and checked with Dr. Hale's group, and the answer was that it was fine to nurse as soon as I was awake and alert.

    When I had a colonoscopy a month later, I called the nurse to figure out the active ingredient of the laxative preparation to see if that would be safe for my baby. I also double checked to make sure I would receive the same sedation. When she responded, she had actually checked into the matter and said that it would be safe to nurse my baby immediately for one of the drugs, and the other would be out of my system within ten hours. (Note that this was a significant improvement over what I had been told one month before, but it still went by when the drug is out of the system, not how much is excreted in breast milk and safe for baby. Dr. Hale knows that, and I follow his advice.) When I had an endoscopy done five months later, I was told that I could not nurse for 48 hours! IT WAS THE SAME DRUGS! Boy, was I angry, but at least I was able to be polite and say, "Actually, another nurse checked into this for me in December ... And not only that, Dr. Thomas Hale does studies on lactation, and he has found ..."

    Your best bet is to communicate politely but clearly with your doctor's staff prior to the procedure and then do your research.
    I breast milk fed my Blossom for fifteen months (after exclusively pumping for thirteen). My Bud (nineteen months) is still nursing directly (after a rough start that included a few months of pumping and supplementing with mommy's milk).

    Unfortunately this is not an option at this point of time. I'm seeing a dental surgeon not regular denstist to remove them since this is ingrown and affecting the other molar
