Can I Relactate After 2 Weeks on Medications?

Dear Lactation Consultant,
Hi.I have to have a c-section and afterwards, due to a history of blood clots in my lungs, the doctor is putting me on Loveanox for two weeks. My question is, since the baby can not nurse due to this medication, can I pump for the first two weeks and then train him to nurse after the loveanox treatment is finished. I want more than anything to nurse my baby. Thanks for your input, nobody seems to know.Robin
