Radiation with pacemaker

Suzzflwr Member Posts: 16

Hi everyone,

I have IDC, was going to do a lump and rads, my problem is I have a 10 year old pacemaker. My cancer surgeon said she hadn’t heard of doing radiation with a pacemaker. Maybe I’m clueless but I thought that wouldn’t be a problem. The Dr is suggesting mastectomy and inhibitors. I’m 66, is there anyone that has had this situation
