I have severe stomach pains and aches that've lasted for six months now, have seen different doctors and still have no diagnosis. My GI doc said I can't do a colonoscopy until I'm done breastfeeding but that may be another year at least, as my son is 18 months old. I've read online that lots of moms HAVE done this procedure, its just there doctor tells them to pump and dump for 24 hours afterwards. But I've also read that I can just dump the first batch and feed normally after I feel ok again. What is true!? It's the anesthetic they're worried about.
I've looked on la leche league with no avail and LactMed won't show me results cuz I don't know the exact meds they use. I can wait until I'm done but I do not wannnnnt to! I'm in pain every other day and have no idea what's causing it. Ultrasounds showed no gallbladder issues or liver, kidney, or appendix issues..
