My newly born son was admitted to hospital immediately after birth due to breathing distress. He was admitted for 45 days. In the mean time my doctor prescribed me milk drying medicine. Now my milk has completely dried up. Now I am trying re-lactation since one month but of no use. Will I be able to relactate again.

It's possible. Some women induce lactation for adopted babies - having never produced milk before. There are outlines on line for how to do it. You'll probably need a good breast pump, I think you take hormones... I'm not sure of the details. I just know it's possible. The Le Leche League should be able to help you out.
