How old is your baby? Has he/she ever used a bottle before? You may have some issues with him/her not taking to a bottle very well... and as for fomula feeding for a day or two... most babies won't mind "too much".... Formula is a whole different flavor/smell and texture than breastmilk.
As far as YOU are concerned, Get a pump, and just pump & dump for the next 2-3 days until Doc's tell you ok to continue. As long as you keep pumping & dumping, your supply should remain relatively consistant. Drink lots of fluids if doctor says ok, but definately do not let yourself become engorged/too full. That can lead to plugged ducts which is PAINFUL, and often times leads to infections that must be cleared up with antibiotics...some of which are not too good to share with your little one..... Sorry you have to have tests done, but first things first,,, Listen to your doc, pump & dump, then get back to giving your baby the best!
