Hi I have et and am on interferon a. I was diagnosed with breast cancer, had a right breast Mastectomy and a week later had a tia which is

thought to be caused by my blood becoming sticky during op, cancer was found in the sentel node that was removed but I can't have another op due to it being considered to risky and the only option is radiotherapy but I'm worried how this will react with my medication and about having radiotheapy. has anyone else had to faceanything like this ?

I can't offer any advice but just wanted to say how sorry I am that you are going through this. I would contact Prof Harrison at Guys to see what she suggests.

Take care.

I would like to send good luck and warm wishes your way. I asked my doctor to refer me to Prof Harrison. As I am out of the area he said the only way he could do this was as a private patient. I went along with this but now see her once a year on the NHS. She is great. x x x
