In brief: No

high dose chemotherapy associated with a bone marrow transplant is no longer recommended for metastatic breast cancer.
Trials have shown this approach to be ineffective. Newer immunochemotherapy trials are now in play and should be investigated/

In brief: It is possible!

You might have been receiving chemotherapy.
The BMT will be determined based on you response, disease status and your body conditions.
