1. How soon did your hair fall out on Taxotere, Herceptin and Perjeta infusions?
2. How often were the infusions given?

3. Was anyone diagnosed with breast cancer that has spread to Liver with 5.0 CM tumor?
4. After chemo was surgery done to remove tumor in liver?

Thank you.

Taxotere, Carboplatin, Herceptin (TCH) for 6 sessions, 3 weeks apart and then Herceptin for the remainder of a year. My diagnosis was HER2+ Stage 2.The taxotere caused hair loss, and it started falling out after the 2nd session. I had already cut my hair short and ordered a wig so it was easy to match the color. When the wig came in, I had the hair buzzed off- the scalp was tender anyway, and it actually felt good to have the weight off of it. I wore a knit night cap at night and it caught all the little fuzzies as they fell out.

Wishing you all the best outcomes with your protocol! Hugs!

Good morning everyone, it’s been a while since I have been on. I am having joint pain. I had breast cancer stage 1 about 3 years ago. I had radiation treatment only and I feel it has affected my joints badly. Any one else having this problem? I have taking everything to help. I take pills called osteo bi flex pills

I have had herceptin almost a year. No hair loss. Just fatigue couple days afterwards.

I'm doing fairly well. I am still a little weak and my fatigue is pretty bad. However, I had chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia going into cancer treatments. I have 10 more Herceptin and Perjeta infusions every 3 weeks. That puts me at the end of August. Then I will start the oral meds for 5 years. Still fighting!

My hair started falling out quickly 8 days after my first TCHP infusion. I received them every 3 weeks. Mine had not spread beyond my lymph nodes. I had the tumor in my right breast removed.
Hang in there. I hope you are well.
