Help! I have been trying to get this info somewhere, but no luck.
i just had an endoscopy yesterday at 9 a.m. ...that doctor told me to wait for 48 hours before bfing, and told me this after having it done. My actual doc said it would be 24 hours, but he said this a few weeks before I had the procedure done. So, I only pumped enough extra milk for about 28 hours worth of feedings, which is exactly when I ran out.
I had anesthesia, i don't know the name, but they call it conscious sedation.
I called the endoscopy center where i had it done, and they said to ask my doctor, i called him and left a message to see if I could nurse my ds any sooner than 48 hours. anyway, my (9 mo) ds will not take formula at all. he cried for 2 hours before my doctor called me back, so I caved in and nursed him at about 30 hours after procedure. then the doc calls and says to wait at least until 42 hours. i didn't say anything, just okay, and hung up. (and yes, I tried other foods, different nipples, different everything! he's teething, so he just wanted mommy's tatas!)
now what? i'm freaked out that I just did something horrible to my child.
what should I do/what could happen?
