I have been undetectable since diagnosis and am still taking meds. Is here anyone with experience of this and advise please help as I know breast is best and doctors are very negative on this topic. I would appreciate your experiences and advise please

Hi

I know there are not many female posters here so I thought I would break the silence in your thread to at least post to say welcome to the forum and congratulations on the pregnancy.

Recently there was a similar thread and prehaps this will yield some insights for you as well. https://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=66366.msg726788

Wishing you all the best

Jim
