Christine, As I read your post I see a really good report.....possible Her2 neu +. No spread via negative scans. You are on the way to the finish line! The FISH test is widely accepted for reliability. I would suggest that in future follow up that doctors be advised re this status. When I was first dxd 8yrs ago my Her2 neu was positive and received Herceptin. My her2neu status did not change with my current dx and again Herceptin stepped up.
What is your ER status? That also will follow future txs. It is important to realize that both of those items can be retested for future treatment planning. My current txs include Herceptin...Faslodex. I rarely think about a "finish line" but rather as a current part of my health requirement now ....such as it would be with a chronic disease such as diabetes. You will do well Christine and you will feel more free once you have reached your wellness goal. You are on the way! Peg
