My LO was 4 months old when I had surgery. I had probably 20 oz. pumped for her, but she didn't need any at all. I nursed her right before anesthesia (my nurse is an old family friend and they were totally ok with that) and when I woke up from anesthesia. I talked to 3 anesthesiologists and had information from kellymom & dr. Hale printed out. I also pre-approved my post-op pain meds. They changed them on me, but luckily they still turned out to be ok. Considering you are having such minor surgery, I would pump once a day or so if you are worried for a worst case scenario, but just one bottles worth would be more than good enough.
