Just because you can't pump doesn't mean you don't have milk. Some women breastfeed fine and can't pump any milk. It's not unusual for one breast to let down easier than the other. The way to tell if you have enough milk is if your baby is gaining at least 4 oz a week or a pound a month. How much you can pump or how your breasts feel are not reliable ways to tell how much milk you have.
Why would you have to stop breastfeeding because you can't get milk by pump from one breast? Even if you only had one breast, you can breastfeed with just one breast.

The vast majority doctors have little or no training in breastfeeding and don't have anyone in their office that is trained. For breastfeeding help you call La Leche League or a laction consultant.
http://www.kellymom.com/ is a great breastfeeding website.
