Hi there all I am about to have my first child here in about 3 months. Last December I was in a car accident that cause some serious damage to my dominate arm. I have already had two surgeries to try and correct it, but the Doc's are saying that I will need another one in the next month otherwise I could loose the use of my wrist and the last two fingers on my left hand. I am scared for some many reasons, surgery was bad enough when I wasn't pregnant, painful and all the drugs the had me on. But now there planning on doing this when I am 7 months, and this surgery is more invasive than the last two. I am looking for anyone who may have gone through something similar, and how the coped. Also because I will still be in a cast after my son is born I am looking for any helpful suggestions on breastfeeding comfortably, cause its what I really wanna do, but not entirely sure on how its going to work out for me. Thanks all!
