Can you manually express just enough to relieve your pain? It may take a few days for your body to adjust, but that helped me when I weaned ODS.

quitting cold turkey puts you at risk for mastitis. you are much better off weaning down slowly. if i misunderstood your post and you HAVE weaned down slowly, I recommend binding your breasts, continuing with the cabbage, and maybe expressing a little just to make the pain manageable. But keep in mind that any stimulation will lead to more milk and more engorgement. The whole supply and demand principle.
