I had a hida scan with cck on the 27th. How long should I pump and dump my breast milk before returning to exclusive breastfeeding?
3 days. The technetium used for the study loses half of its energy each 6 hours. After 10 half lives all is safe. 60 hrs or about 3 days.
48 hours. Hida is labeled to 99mtc-technetium, which is a radioisotope with a physical half-life of 6 hours, meaning that the radioactivity decreases by 50% every 6 hours. Usually 24 hours should be enough but generally we suggest to patients to do it for 36-48 hours if they can. At that time, most of the radioactive compound would be eliminated from your body. Good luck.
48 hours. Technetium 99m is the isotope tagged to hida. It has 6hr half life. Usually by 24 hours most of it has decayed, but for most safety 48 hours would be 8 half lives.
Smoked a little meth and been "pumping and dumping" breast milk few times. Is it safe to resume breastfeeding now?
How long? Amphetamines take 1-2 days to clear out of the body. You may wish to wait a day since you smoked, before resuming breast feeding. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Read more...
Make a choise. Either breast feed or do meth. The two are not compatible,ever. Baby doesn't need your drug, and no amount of dumping will remove all risks of your habit. I. Read more...
