i had breast cancer in 1998 and 2001 followed by CML diagnosed in 2003. Currently on Nilotinib and levels are all good. i have now been daignosed with more breast cancer which is HER2+ as well as oestrogen and progesterone positive. The lump has been removed and proposed chemo of Pertuzumab, trastuzumab and paclitaxel weekly for 12 weeks. the oncologist is unsure what to do about the Nilotinib and even suggested I stop taking it during chemo but this frightens me as could i be swapping one good result for another and messing up the CML? she hasn't checked with the Hammersmith yet and i don't feel like i have all the information i need to agree to this chemo.
Any advise from anyone who has gone through the same would be appreciated.
