I am 37 years old and just been diagnosed with HER2+.

I haven’t started any treatment yet but meeting with the Oncologist next Mon to discuss chemo which will start soon, then surgery and Radio therapy.  Herceptin will also feature in my treatment.


What can I expect as I have no idea??

Hi dino, 

Im her2+ also.  Im at the start with surgery tomorrow. 

My surgeon said her2+ is good because herceptin is great at targeting it. He has no sense of humour but smiled too. I dont see the oncologist until later.

I know you want more info and I know someone will respond, but im sending love and support.
