Thanks for the response! I ended up using some gel packs to help the engorgement go down. Over all she weaned really well and quickly. I am surprised this team is so quiet? Well have a wonderful spark day!

I think I managed to wean over about a 2 week period because I had to go on psych meds which were also not compatible with nursing. I found that breast massage was the best thing for it. It might get messy, but it definitely helps. I would also suggest Tylenol, but considering what I'm sure are much more heavy duty drugs post surgery, I wouldn't mix them. Ice packs are good, and I've always heard about the benefits of chilled cabbage leaves, though it was not something that I tried at all. My engorgement passed pretty quickly because my daughter was fairly close to having self weaned so it wasn't as large a shock on my body, she more nursed as a comfort thing at the time.

emoticon Hi I am new to the team. Excited to get to know everyone on the team. I recently just had back surgery a couple days ago. I had to wean my daughter from Breast Feeding because my pain meds are not compatible and I can not nurse with my back. Can anyone tell me how do I go about weaning and engorgement? I was nursing up to 2 -3 times a day when I went for surgery. I did wean her off the afternoon nursing session for a month and half prior to the time I got the call for my surgery. I only had 2 weeks notice. I ended up pumping 2 times on Day 1 after surgery bec I was so uncomfortable. Yesterday only once I pumped. I don't want to have any infection.. and I can't go in the shower to relieve engorgement due to my dressings on my back. If anyone has weaned I would greatly appreciate the advice.
