Hi everyone. I'm praying that someone on here will have some ideas - just any ideas!!
my situation -
Currently exclusively breastfeeding 7 mo baby boy. He born with no issues, although i did have a very painful pregnancy - which we believe was due to my endo, so following doctors orders spent the last 6 months on panadine extra. (paracetamol & codeine)
My 1st preg was the same - that girl is another box of issues.
My primary concern atm is this - After the birth of my son, i experienced some severe pains, in which again following doctors orders took pain relief - that's it. So 6 weeks - constant endone, and panadine forte.
7 months on - I'm still taking pain relief- although i had gone on alt routes - naturist has me on a large range of metagenics antiimmflatories etc etc - a chiro has helped somewhat. But my son - gets severe reactions to me eating dairy - gluten.
In the last week i saw Lady who practices TCM - whatever she gave my son seems to be helping, but of course they all say I'm n for the long haul. So I am looking at the gerson therapy etc - I literally have tried everything OK whilst breastfeeding and nothing is helping - i stopped taking my natural pain relief and thought i was going to die this week. My husband and i have decided its CRISIS mode time.
Opinions please - Do i continue on my path pain killers both natural and others - until my son is done with breastfeeding -
OR is there a safe way for me to start detoxing with out him being ill?
my diet has already changed significantly and is very clean - IE nothing processed etc.
Or try (he HATES AND REFUSES) the bottle, I'm so scared about putting my beautiful boy on formula - but I'm so sick - and currently my family unit is all about me being sick. That's is, its all just working around mumma bear being sick or not...
I heard Kathryn Alexander speak today, hoping she may have some insight to our scenario. But thought some one here might too.
PS - we are not even 100% sure as to what my pain is from - i presume endometriosis....
