Has anyone ever successfully breastfed following breast reduction surgery ?

I am in agony again with a trapped nerve.
Being a size 10 with 32 g breasts its been suggested before that i have a breast reduction .
I`d really like to do this after i`ve completed my family, but nights like tonight when i`m in agony with my neck i wish i could do it AND still breastfeed ?
Think i`ll still wait but just wondered if anyone else has actually managed it /
Cheers x

My friend had a breast reduction and was able to breastfeed. I do think that it depends on how good the surgeon is tbh.

I got pregnant 2 months after a breast reduction! Although delighted, I was worried about breast feeding and also about them getting bigger again. My surgeon told me that it is really a 50/50 chance of being able to breastfeed. Luckily I was able to. However they did grow a little during the pregnancy, and I have been told it will be possible to have another reduction if I want at a later date.

My SIL could feed after surgery and her DD is a big bruiser - very well fed !!

This is what is putting me off a reduction at the moment. Boobs needed for active service for a while yet...

I was same as you size 8-10 30hh but would not have surgery til family complete.
I have finished now and am awaiting surgery (nhs)
Get an osteopath to help with neck as it can be displaced first /2nd rib
I had that and the nerve pain is hideous
Few manipulations and easy exercises
Bobs your uncle pain much reduced
