Has anyone had persistent and stubborn blocked ducts in one breast only? I battle blockages all the time in my left breast and have been for the last 2 months.
I know both the causes of blocked ducts and how to treat them (or else I would have had mastitis a number of times). So I'm not after that information.
What I'm wanting to know from anyone whose been there is if there turned out to be some abnormal reason for your blockages. Was there anything going on in one breast that prevented it draining well?
An LC suggested it could be a low grade infection...? She also suggested getting a diagnostic ultrasound done. I will as soon as I can arrange it.
If I can't get this resolved, my DS will be on formula very soon. I've already had to begin supplementing because my left breast gets so blocked that he can barely get milk from it. Then once I've finally cleared the blockage (can take days) my supply is way down. He's less and less persevering with breastfeeding because of these issues.
I'm so emotional at the prospect of ending our breastfeeding, so I just wanted to check whether there might be some hope before this door closes. : (
Thanks in advance for any insight!
