I developed acute right pulmonary emboli after mastectomy and axilliary node removal for infiltrating lobular carcinoma in my left breast and am currently on 2mg warfarin daily. I have seen 2 oncologists, one advised that I should not go for radiotherapy because of possible further damage to my lungs following the pulmonary emboli, the other has advised that radiotherapy is safe even with the pulmonary emboli.
I am totally confused. Is anyone able to advise, or has anyone been in a similar situation, and what was the approach and outcome regarding radiotherapy?
