Bf after breast surgery

Postby Kodak2057 » Wed Mar 27, 2013 3:44 pm

I am only 6 weeks but curious if there are any other post breast reduction ladies out there who were able to bf normally? Will I know if I can before trying or will I have to wait and see? My surgery was 11 years ago when I was 19 and dr at the time said 30% chance that I wouldn't be able to. Just wondering if anyone has words of wisdom for a hopeful bfer

I have a friend who did, although she had to supplement a little.
