I havent updated my situation in awhile... I am STILL EPing. DD turned 3 in October. I do not want to pump anymore. I don't want to dry up, though, since I am also nursing my ds from the tap, who is 14 months old. Every time I try to reduce pumping, I get Mastitis. I don't know how to do this without getting sick again. The last time I tried, was in December. I ended up with an abscess and was really sick. That was Dec 5th. I went for a mammogram. In the other breast, an area was found, and it was possible it was cancer. I had a stereotactic biopsy which I am still recovering from. I do not have cancer!!! : It was a lot to go through emotionally and physically. I still have a lump in that breast from the surgery. I really want to stop pumping but can not risk getting sick again. I don't know what to do. I am starting to be sorry I EP'd since I can't seem to stop. This is getting rediculous, 3.25 years of pumping, most kids don't even bf from the tap this long.
