mastitis and supply

I was pumping about 7 times a day and getting about 800ml total until I got mastitis. It totally destroyed the supply in my affected breast and eventhough this was over 2 weeks ago, I'm just now starting to see a miniscule increase in supply on the one side (pumping max 40mls from the bad breast per session). Does anyone know if it is just naturally slow to come back or is there something I should be doing to increase the supply on the one side?

I've had a number of mastitis infections and yes, depending on how bad they are, they can cause supply loss.
