Just wanted to see how you are doing and if you were able to regain some supply?

Try using manual expressing after you pump. Your fingers will compress the sinuses which your pump cannot do. Hang yourself over a bowl with your nip down in the bowl to catch the spray. Use your thumb and forefinger. I use a sort of squeeze and slide motion. Works for me. Maybe it will help you get a little extra

I use a small mixing bowl with a little pour spout on it so I don't spill when I pour it into the bottle.
