Re: Throat infection


Hi Clairbear85


Thanks for posting. Apologies for the delayed reply. You may have got help for your swollen throat by now hopefully.


If not, I’d encourage you to check with your GP or hospital team to make sure it’s ok to take antibiotics before you begin your treatment.


You’re welcome to check our services at Breast Cancer Care, which offer support for anyone affected by breast cancer.
