Hello, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. I

Hello, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. I had tubular lobular invasive carcinoma. My onco type test was 17. I was quite relieved that I did not need chemotherapy. That same year I was involved in a hit skip motor vehicle accident. I developed neuralgia and was put on gabapentin. Yesterday the neuralgia in my head worsened, I could not touch my head without severe pain. I took 900 mg last evening. I took my morning dose which is 300 mg. Tonight I
am increasingly tremulous, lightheaded, and extremely agitated. Should I skip my nightly dose of 600 mg? Please advise.
Thank you,

Hello Dr Thakwani, My mother was diagnosed to have breast cancer (Right- mucous carcinoma), the FNAC suggested. When consulted with the surgical oncologist, he suggested to get total mastectomy with axillary dissection. A PET-CT scan was done at 5:30AM in the morning & an operation was carried out at 4PM same day (I m not sure if this is right, getting the reports & operation on the same day). The PET-CT scan report says Mutiple poorly enhacing soft tissue densities in the upper & inner quadrant of right breast, a few small right axillary nodes not significant by size criteria & no distant metastases . Bone scan report says No evidence of skeletal metastases. Histopathology report says Multifocal mucinous carcinoma grade 1 of right breast, base of resection is free of tumour, all 18 axillary lymph nodes are free of tumor, ER-Positive, PgR- Positive, Her-2/neu - Negative The fuild (serum) comming out from the operated region post operation was heavy 350ml,300ml...on the 5th, 6th, 7th day of post operation it was 220,200,180ml respectively. we were very much concerned about this but the doctor assertained that there was nothing to worry. My mom was refer to another medical oncologist by the surgical oncologist after 1month of operation to consult on whether to go for chemotherapy or harmone therapy My mom had no other illness, diabeties, BP except that had hypothyroidism for which she was taking thyroid tablets early in the morning before breakfast and varicose vein. Her age being 56yrs. The medical oncologist suggested her to take 4 cycles of chemotherapy & later take harmone therapy. But just after 3 days of the first chemotherapy my mom passed away with breathlessness & low-BP. Please explain me the cause, since except for the threatment she was hail & healthy & within one month of diagnosis of breast cancer & threatment we had to lose her & it has disturbed us soo much that we are still in a state of shock
