I am really having a hard time with these.
I am pumping every 5 1/2 hrs for 15 mins on the lowest setting of my pump. This is down from every 4-5 hours for 30 mins on the highest setting. I gradually decreased over 2 weeks to the 15 mins.
Now I am having to soak in a hot bath and 'pop' these awful ducts both in the morning and evening. I also apply heat as I pump, take lecithin capsules 2x a day and ordered the sage tea online. Having to work out the plugged ducts is really making me nauseous as I seem to have one or two each pumping session....I don't think this is normal??
I contacted a LC I worked with earlier and she is getting me info on someone who can drain lymphs?? I am going to look into it, as it is getting really bad.

Any other suggestions? I know I just recently posted about this, but any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance- karma
