Alison, please go to the CTCA website where you can chat with a professional who deals with all types of cancer care and treatments. They were very helpful to me when I was first diagnosed. I was diagnosed with stage 2a, so can not give you an educated answer, as I believe they can. There are also some really great women on this site who have been through a lot of different cancers and treatments who may also help. Good luck to you! I hope someone can help you!
