So sorry about your accident, f you dont feed the baby, eventually body will get signal to stop milk supply. There will not be any harm for you...

Hope ur doing better now.. wishing u quick recovery. if it not feeding your baby... eventually the milk supply will reduce. but you may find ur breasts hardened n hurting. that's a little painful. see if u can take your husbands help while expressing depending on your situation.
