Hi hun and welcome. C C can happen at any time, a few months and even yrs after a b a. I had it with my 1st b a but am afraid I cant answer the breastfeeding question as I breastfed my children before I had my b a. Am sure someone will come along and answer you soon xx

hello

i guess you have probably found the answer to your CC and brest feeding q now but i will answer anyways



my boobs were fine until i fell pregnant 6 years ago. alll the way through they were fine until the breastfeeding bit.

My right boob like you say went very very hard and after 3 prgnancies i knew it wasnt the letting down milk, i couldnt really feed from the right much - it was too painful. As i was getting loads of flow on the left and only a trickle from the right - my BF co ordinator brought a machine pump thing from the hospital. it helped with the flow and i learnt to feed him from under my arm like holding a rugby ball.

once i stopped feeding around 12 weeks - the left went back and soft the right still hard and my nipple went inverted. to touch it still - 5 years later is like razor blades whereas the feeling in my left has intensified BREASTFEEDING CAUSING CAPSULAR CONTRACTION? 899188 - i left it as i was in no pain but, as the years went on my right got worse in shape (sort of implant in place hard but my skin/own boob hanging off it) - it sounds gross. from the front no one could tell in a bra but when the bra is off my nipple is sort of underneath near the infra mammitory fold. I am now having revision surgery in march - i cant live with the emotional detatchment its affecting my sex life and marriage.

So, I am going to be honest, in my experience I felt left out like i had this burning desire to feed my little one at what every cost (i didnt my first two due to facial deformity) but thats another story...

They say breast is best - yes no doubt it is for the baby. For me absolutely not. I wish i had never done it as i believe it was the feeding that caused the mess my boobs are in now (the one on the right)



hope this helps someone else in future.



if in doubt about wether to feed and affect on implants - speak to a PS as all other medical people like Health visito r and GP midwife will encourage you to do it, well in my case where are those people now? they said i would be fine and i most definately am not
