Lactation after 7 months. will it improve or r they last few drops that didn't dry

Patient

Q: I had a c section. I breastfed for 2 weeks and completely switched to formula feedings. Baby is 6 months old now. I found my breasts had increased 2 sizes and 3 cups sizes (34A to 36D) after delivery. I had no pains. Simply used breast pump and I immediately leaked drops of milk.

I was on diet pills last one month. I haven't shed a kilo of pregnancy still. What do I do now? I'm a working mom with financial constraint to continue working.

Symptoms:  Big breasts, zero weight loss, no thyroid or diabetes, hard breasts that loosened after expression of the drops of milk
