Anyone ever been through this? (Kids mentioned)

Is there anyone here who has ever had to have a hysterectomy and was still breastfeeding? I am still nursing my youngest one.

Re: Anyone ever been through this? (Kids mentioned)

Wow. Good question! The only advice I can give you is to ask your doctor or a nurse that you trust.

I know that this has to have come up quite a bit because if you need a hysterectomy and you are pregnant they usually do the hyst at the time of delivery so the body only has to go through one major trauma. At least that's what a friend of mine who is a nurse told me. At least some of those women must have wanted to breastfeed.

I do know that one of the effects of breastfeeding is contraction of the uterus so I'm not sure what would happen if the uterus was gone.

I know, I'm not any help, but I wanted you to know that you're not alone out there! Good luck!
