i just had a c-section 10 weeks ago and was able to wear my pump the whole time. The Dr. left it completely up to me to test my sugars and such, but they kept on me to make sure I didn’t drop too low or high.
As for the recovery, I was walking around a couple hours after the surgery. I did not have a hard time with the recovery at all, and I know it sounds crazy but I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! They gave me a prescription for T3’s but all I needed was advil (just the regular over the counter stuff), and even then, I only took about 4 a day.
I hope that helps, and if you have any more questions, I would be happy to help if I can
Good Luck, I’m sure everything will run smoothly…oh, and just so you know, about 20 minutes after the surgery (when I was in recovery), I was instructed by my endocrinologist to adjust my pump settings by 50%…you will notice a lot of hypo’s at first, especially if you are breastfeeding, so be prepared as it’s very difficult to look after your baby when you start to have one
Take care, and keep me posted on how it goes.
