Breastfeeding after having breath surgery?

I had a partial breast reduction done back in 2009, more like a lift than a reduction. I don't think my surgeon cut off my mammary ducts and I still do have some sensation on my nipples. I'm 23 weeks now and I really want to breastfeed when my baby gets here. I so regret doing that surgery now :( is there anyone out there who had success with breastfeeding after having breast surgery (not breast implants)?

I had one at 18 back in 2007 with my set of twins i leaked a lot and the doctor also tried to leave my milk glands and ducts. Currently pregnant with a single baby and I'm 36 weeks today and I really haven't leaked that much so I'm more worried this time I only got like two oz out the twins but ended having to stop because of them being in the nicu and other severe medical issues that put me on medicine that would hurt babies..
I think u will be able too how many weeks are u have u started leaking? I would for sure by a breast pump too because u can power pump and bring up ur supply and feed baby every two hours. I would as soon as baby come do skin to skin and make them wait to weight baby or see how long baby is because it will help you body to know you have to start making milk try to get baby to get baby to latch on....

Good luck

The time as much as you can will help with ur supply there is mothers milk it's some type of tea you drink i think you can get it a target and medicine is you can take that the doctor can give you also fenugreek it's a natural supplements you can get a vitamin or health food store...
