My 11mo son prefers nursing from left breast& now my left breast is bigger than the right. Is this a permanent change? I only get engorged on left.

In brief: Not likely

most women have one breast that gets fuller and is easier to feed from. While some women do have some breast asymmetry that gets more prominent with breast feeding, it will likely improve after breast feeding done.
I sometimes see breast sizes over a cup size difference between left and right even before pregnancy.
