Alright, just want to get your take on this. I'm scheduled for a tonsillectomy in two months. I was originally scheduled for in two weeks, but I didn't think I'd have enough time to prepare so I was able to move it back. Is there somewhere I can find out what pain meds are okay to take while breastfeeding? They said I'd be laid out for two weeks I exclusively bf my 8 1/2 month old and plan to until she's two - otherwise I'd push it back more, but that's a long way and I need them out. I have a really hard time pumping, even when there's a lot of milk in there, it just doesn't like to come out on its own. It takes two hands to work on one breast and that isn't very fruitful. I'm already going out of town for a week and get back a few days before my scheduled surgery. So I'm trying to pump up and save up as much as I can for that. I'm afraid I won't have enough.
So basically, has anyone else had to be on pain meds? Do you know what will be safe so I can request a certain pain reliever?
