I'm Gina, and I'm a survivor of Breast Cancer

I was diagnosed with triple positive in January. I had 6 rounds of TCHP (Taxotere, Carboplatin, Hercerptin and Pergeta. Then continued every three weeks with Herceptin and Pergeta (for 3 rounds). After my lumpectomy, since I had residual cancer that was not wiped out by the Cytotoxic chemo, my maintenance therapy was changed to Kadcyla which I will continue every three weeks until January. I also started on Letrizole hormone therapy pill right after the lumpectomy, which I’ll be on for 7 years.

Hi, I'm Glori

I am so confused. They say Herceptin is only good on Hers2+?

Hi, I'm Betti

Unless things have changed since my diagnosis almost 7 years ago Herceptin is given to premenopausal women who are Er/Pr+. AIs are given to post menopausal women in the same instances-Er/Pr+.

What are your side effects after chemo stopped and now taking other drugs? Ir looks like I’m on your same pathway chemo #2 tomorrow.
