Breastfeeding with Breast Cancer

I am a breast cancer survivor who has had mastectomy and breast reconstruction after that. This was 2 years ago. I have been blessed with a baby boy recently and I wanted to know if it would be safe to breastfeed to my child. The doctors say that it is ok as long as I am not on any medicines or still on chemo.I have heard about a supplemental nursing system for breast reconstruction mothers that can help with breast feeding. Anyone else like me who has been through this situation? I would prefer to breast feed but if not, are there other alternative solutions to give my child the right nutrients? I have been in touch with doctors but wanted some advice from mothers who have been through this situation, Thanks
I hope you are doing well. This is a very interesting topic! I'm not sure if many members on the site have been in a similar situation, but I will tag a few members to see if they can share with you some of their experiences, either personal or that of a friend.
Have you been in a similar situation or known someone who has breastfed after a mastectomy? How did it go? What was the experience like?

Ultimately, if you have been given the "okay" from your doctors and feel comfortable- that is the biggest question. But I can understand the need to know more and understand the situation a bit better by someone who has personally gone through the situation.
