I was just (last week) diagnosed with Thyroid cancer. I solely breastfeed Marley (to the point where I took no pain medications after surgery as not to interrupt nursing!)
Unfortunately the cancer is a little worse than originally thought and I have been instructed that I will not be able to breastfeed AT ALL after the next surgery and radiation (in 2-3 weeks).
Donor milk never occurred to me, but Marley actually saved my life in that the benign mass on my thyroid (pregnancy hormone related) is what lead us to find the cancer. If it wasn't for the pregnancy related cyst, the cancer may have gone undetected for too long.
I want the best for my daughter. I have been an ER nurse for almost 9 years now, so I would simply request basic blood work (OB workup fine) and medications taking.
Thank you ladies for all you do. Marley has never had formula and I do not want to start now.
