An average weight person (150lbs) would have to take 9700 iu (might as well round to 10,000 iu a day from a starting point of 14ng/ml.
Having said that if you have not already read http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/ please do so. If you do not take enough magnesium then you might get symptoms that you do not need and you have already been through enough.
You may also want to be cautious since you are doing chemotherapy and start by taking 5000iu for a week and see how you feel. Then if OK take the 10,000 iu. If you recheck your levels in a month or so and they are not where you want them to be, you may have to take a higher amount.
You may also find a lot of information on Henry’s website for breast cancer and also chemo and Vitamin D. http://www.vitamindwiki.com/Search+Results?hl=en&oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF-8&btnG=Google+Search&q=chemotherapy&domains=vitamindwiki.com&sitesearch=vitamindwiki.com
