I guess i was expecting more off an answer then what i got thanks anyway

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This session is open for any number of further questions that you may have..
The injection that you had, was most likely a numbing injection in the form of lignocaine. This is absolutely safe if you are breastfeeding. So there is nothing to worry about at all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This is not secreted in breast milk and will not affect your baby.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have more questions

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would appreciate a positive rating if possible.

Dr. Shahzad MD :
