Can I Have Rib Removal Surgery While Breastfeeding?

Q: Dr. Eppley, regarding rib removal I have a concern, since I am breastfeeding, how can we ensure or know that my body has enough nutrients to recover from the surgery and for the bone to heal?

A: Don’t do the surgery until you are finished with breastfeeding…that is the only assured way to know.
