I agree with Carolinapam--better to be safe than sorry. I was diagnosed April 2010, stage 3, triple+, tumor 5 cm. Had 4 A/C & 12 taxol concurrent with Herceptin (not perjetta). The Herceptin was once every 3 wks. for one year. After chemo, I had a lumpectomy because the tumor had shrunk, and then had another lumpectomy 3 wks. later to get cleaner margins. Had all nodes removed. Then had 33 rounds of radiation, followed by finishing Herceptin and what was supposed to be 5 years of the AIs. However, I only did one year of the AIs. Hope that helps. Hugs & prayers, Mary
