To make a long story short, I recently had surgery to drain an abscess from my breast which was due to mastitis. I have had a drain in this breast for over one week, and it will not be removed for at least several more days. During this time I have not nursed on this affected side; I have continued nursing on my good side.
I hope and pray that I will be able to resume nursing on the bad side. Does anyone know what the prognosis is for this breast as far as milk production goes? I have had a mild to moderate decrease in supply on my good side. I cannot start taking any kind of supplements until my incisions have healed.
Any info or advice would be great!
