hi vanki, welcome to the board. Sorry you're dealing with this. I don't know the answer to your question but wanted to let you know that 1 of the things we do on this board is discuss treatment plans and options. Usually we are talking based on NCCN guidelines and whatever clinical trials are happening.

https://www.nccn.org/patients/guidelines/content/PDF/stage...

Also we have a thread for stage 4 triple negative where we discuss our treatments.

https://community.breastcancer.org/forum/8/topics/...

On page 93 of that thread, 4th post from top I have listed all the triple negative systemic treatments commonly used.

If you become familiar with common treatment strategies you will be better able to discuss and decide on a treatment plan with the medical team.

I think ideal is to be treated in a major city with a university/research affiliated hospital because the newest treatments are usually through clinical trials. But being near home and family and friends is also very important.

Hope that helps get you started
