Hi! I have dxed pulm sarc via bronch at National jewish last year. Immediately after dx, I had a surprise pregnancy so any treatment (if any) was put off. As many of you know, post partum runs a high risk for a flare up, which I believe I am in...I think that it has spread to my heart and spleen.
Anyway, I have read about the amazing results with curcumin, and I just ordered 2 bottles off of nutrivene. The only problem is that I am breastfeeding my almost 4 month old. Every link I have found says that it is not know if it is safe to BF and take curcumin. The best that I can find is that via normal dietary intake, 60 to 200 mg is ingested in indian cultures so that appears to be safe. But from what I understand I would be taking 500mg to 8 mg, right? Can anyone find ANYTHING about studies being done about curcumin and breastfeeding?
I would HATE to stop breastfeeding, but I really feel like I need to pull the trigger and start some form of treatment and I am terrified of prednisone. Thanks.
