I have to have a surgery and I am still nursing my daughter who just turned 1. She is very much attached to me and this is will only be an outpatient procedure with no hospital stay. My question is, have any of you other nursing moms had surgery while nursing, or known someone who has? I need to know the fastest way to get the anesthesia out of my system so that she is able to nurse again. She will take breastmilk and water from a sippy, so I am not worried about her getting the fluids that she needs. It is just if I am around she does not want it any other way except for from me. Any suggestions will help. I will be going under general anesthesia and the doctors told me she can nurse safely after 24 hours have passed. Thank you in advance for your help!
