I posted in the Health and Healing forum, but thought I should also try here. I have recently been diagnosed with Medullary Thyroid Cancer and will have to have a total thyroidectomy and neck dissection. I am still nursing my 16 month old and would like to continue to do so after my surgery. Has anyone here had a thryoidectomy or other major surgery and continued to nurse afterwards? I am hoping to work with my surgeon to choose medications that are as breastfeeding-friendly as possible. Any suggestions as to how you coped with nursing after a major surgery would be helpful. I had a surprise C-section with my second child (she was breech and no one, including me suspected it!) so I've nursed a newborn after surgery, but I didn't need to be under general anesthesia for that, as I will now. Thanks for your help!
