TDM1

TDM1

I just had my mastectomy surgery a week ago and after getting my Herceptin infusion this week My oncologist now wants to switch me to the TDM one for the next infusion. I will have 14 treatments every three weeks and she says it’s a gentle or former of chemo but it has Herceptin and some chemo in it plus some pre-meds .
Any suggestions and advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you ladies for all the love and support. The reason why I have to have this different infusion rather than Herceptin is because there’s a little bit of residual cancer that was left after the… read more

Cancer Marker Tests

Cancer Marker Tests

Do you trust this method or do you want other exams, ie: a pet scan?

They don't do marker tests or PET scans where I am. I alternate MRI's with mammos every 6 months plus i see my onc yearly and I'm ok with that.

Has Anyone Suffered Post Reconstruction From Itching Underneath The Implant?

Has Anyone Suffered Post Reconstruction From Itching Underneath The Implant?

I am seven years out breast reconstruction and having four days of itching and pulsing tingling with no relief in sight. Seriously wishing I had just gone flat. I don't think there is enough education of reconstruction long term and what it means. I feel like I had no information and assumed since women had been doing this for decades the risk was low.
