I have been experiencing a lot of problems after my treatment. I've had pneumonia and bronchitis and been in the hospital for both. My onco doesn't seem to think the heraceptin is causing the problem !! But I've had chemo and radiation... Both are done I have 2 more treatments of hereceptin to go. Can I just call it quits. I can not breathe anymore after treatments!
Hello there - I have just finished chemo (DD AC then weekly Taxol/Hercetin) and was supposed to go onto Herceptin alone every 3 weeks, but with a heart scan discovered that my injection fraction has decreased dramatically. I'm off Herceptin to see if it will recover. Did this happen to anyone else? Did you recover?
I am finished with my 6 week cycles of HTC + perjeta. Surgery in under a month for mastectomy. Wondering how different side effects will be and what to expect when doing just Herceptin every three weeks.
I was told I needed to have chemo, Taxol/Herceptin to improve I odds of beating cancer. I declined to have any treatment except a mastectomy. So far I have had clean check ups. April 19th will be 2 years!
I'm HER 2+ in one breast and ER+ in the other. Had a double masectomy with expanders placed. I'm currently getting chemo of Taxotere and Carboplatin + Herceptin. I was wondering after chemo whether my oncologist will put me on an estrogen suppressor or another pill. My sister is on Femara and says it hurts her bones.. Any ladies out there with a similar diagnosis that can tell me what was prescribed after chemo/Herceptin?
