I doubt the novocaine would be harmful--isn't it used routinely in hospitals on birthing women (e.g., for numbing prior to tear repair)? You're not doing mercury fillings, right? Not sure what else one would worry about. I think in your position I'd continue to nurse. Giving bottles to an EBF baby can be tricky and stressful so probably not worth it of there's no good reason for it. Medical professionals tend to (1) know very little about breastfeeding and (2) not value it highly and think it's not really necessary.
Best wishes for your upcoming treatment!
