Hi all I’m looking for advice - I’m SPMS and was diagnosed with breast cancer two weeks ago. I had a lumpectomy 10 days ago and thankfully no cancer was found in the nodes - they took 4 nodes as well as breast lump to send to lab.
My question to you all concerns treatment for cancer and how it might affect my MS. Eventhough I’m SPMS I take Gilenya.
I’m meeting with an oncologist on Tuesday to discuss treatment but am getting the impression that they might hold back on cancer treatment due to MS.
They had told me previously that when a lump is removed - malignant of benign - it’s always followed by a course of radiotherapy or chemo but they seem to think that they don’t want to cause my ms symptoms to worsen.
Does anybody have any experience regarding any of the above - has anybody received such treatments and if so how did MS react?
I would appreciate any information PLEASE
