Is breastfeeding safe?

Guys, I'm getting worried. I'll have my one-month postpartum check-up with my endo tomorrow. My OB-GYNE advised that I should nurse my baby. I have been doing so for a month now, but I've read some internet materials saying that breastfeeding might increase a pituitary tumor. My last MRI (post-surgery) was indicative of a 3mm residual tumor... I feel that I'd rather shift my baby to bottle feeding much as I want to continue nursing her, than take the risk of a tumor regrowth---that is SCARY!!!

Blog Away

Blogging...I think it's great therapy to get your thoughts out and it helps others, too! There is a new blog that has been posted by Miss Magpie who lives in Germany: She recently had surgery and is sharing her story on Blogger. I would encourage y'all to check it out when you get the chance.

Also - anyone else who passes through this site, let us know if you've created a blog to share your story. There are many people looking for information on acromegaly, and most are wanting to read a personal experience from someone who has had surgery for a pituitary tumor. So, blog away (if you get the urge to) and tell others about you. Thanks to everyone who has shared their story with us!
