Are there any lupus patients who have cancer and had to have chemo? I have triple negative breast cancer. I read on the Lupus Foundation Website that breast cancers are not very common in Lupus patients. I don't know my family history, whether or not my mother had breast cancer, so I am getting genetic testing to see if I have the BRCA gene and also whether or not I have any other mutant genes that could cause cancers in other parts of the body. I am currently waiting for those results. In the meantime, I have a mastectomy scheduled for mid October and by then the genetic results should be in. When you have a triple negative breast cancer, chemo is always given. I ask if any patients have had chemo because I am highly sensitive to medications. I can't even take lupus meds. I tried prednisone and plaquenil and both drugs made me extremely ill. I only take Tylenol arthritis 1300 mg a day. It's barely enough to manage my pain but there are no side effects. I have to get chemo 6 weeks after surgery. I cannot imagine someone as sensitive to drugs as I am having to put something as toxic as chemo in my body. Does anyone else have sensitivities to medicines? Has anyone else had chemo and if so what kind?
