Went Friday to the surgeon and she asked me about the herceptin and how often/long I will have it--which I have one tomorrow(every 3 weeks until the end of November). She said that the Onc might put me on it for life since I've had cancer several times & was going to talk with the Onc.
I'm not sure how I feel about that but it would be better than getting cut on all the time & if it prevents the cancer from coming back I'm all for it.
What the Onc told me and what I've read the Herceptin can cause heart damage. I do have a heart scan every 3 months to make sure the Herceptin isn't affecting that but it's still scary thinking that it can affect my heart.
Anyone else doing the Herceptin regiment? Hugs to all, Ruby from Indiana
