In brief: Yes
Prior breast cancer does not Prohibit a woman from breastfeeding, however, the affected breast may not prodice much milk if treated by radiation therapy.
Furthermore, any medication that you are taking, including chemotherapy, may be transmitted in the breast milk and should be avoided.
