DS turns two in 10 days, so it's not like he needs the milk to survive. But the poor dude nurses a lot. Nurses to sleep, and in the middle of the night, and in the morn and throughout the day.
I'm having surgery in 2 weeks. I'll be away from him overnight, and he won't be able to nurse for 24 hours.
Has anyone BTDT? Any advice?

Is the 24 hour time frame because you have to be apart for that long, or because someone has told you that you can't nurse after surgery because of the medication?
If at all possible I'd try to do what Katelove did, and nurse in the hospital before and after surgery. This will be good for your little one, and also for you - you do not want mastitis or engorgement after surgery! And I can't imagine trying to pump after surgery either.
