I had two stents placed because my arteries were clogged and two months after that I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. To make things worse, my oncologist confirmed I have very high chance of cancer recurring and would like to start me on Cytoxin chemo, but my cardiologist thinks that chemo will definitely interfere with the placed stents.

Now I’m in a situation where the only option I have is to either risk with the chemo, or risk the cancer recurrence if I only take tamoxifen which on its own has potential to affect my heart even more. If anyone with chronic heart disease was in this situation, any advice would be greatly appreciated.
