lidocane and BF?

I had to get a mole removed this morning and they used lidocane (sp?) for the procedure and the dr said it was ok/safe for BF, but I wanted to check and see what a BF-friendly person would say? :) Is it safe to continue nursing or should I "pump and dump" a few times? I have never had much luck with pumping, so am concerned that I might hurt supply, but would rather be safe for LO than...

Lidocaine is rated L2 (safer) and is AAP approved for nursing moms. I wouldn't suspend bf at all.
