In brief: Can't see why not

If you (and your partner) are in the mood and your breast cancer does not cause you too much discomfort, there should not be any contraindication to your "engaging in intercourse" whether genito-sexual intercourse or any other intercourse/sexual activities that are enjoyable to you.

I am so sorry to hear this.
However, I know of no contraindication to sexual activity as long as you are physically comfortable with it. Take care.
