So, my doctor had taken a culture last week to see if anything grew... nothing did, so no infection (I knew that). The "galactocele" seems to get smaller after nursing or pumping and bigger in between sessions, so maybe it is just a sluggish duct. Nothing really to worry about, I guess. The doctor suggested continuing to pump for another 3 to 4 weeks (I take this to mean 3 to 4 weeks from last week), weaning off the last pump slowly over that time.
Does this sound like a good plan? After I get off the pump, I will be dropping some nursing sessions, which I guess I will have to do slowly, too.
I'm so discouraged... I thought it would be so easy to HUTH. In a way it's good, because it's prolonging the time we're still nursing - I'm only weaning b/c my DH wants me to =( But I am getting pressure from my DH now.
