  • yep- very possible. you could always double check with your doctor though to make sure it's not something else. my mother had 2 lumps removed recently and she had discharge from her breasts from the infection they caused.

  • I have heard that you can have discharge up to 2 years later. I would call a lactation consultant unless your doctor is very familiar with breastfeeding. My doctors always seem to ask me lots of questions about breastfeeding. It's not an area they are experienced in (and one is a female doctor!)

  • I "leaked" for 3 years after I finished breast feeding.
