Perjeta and not wanting to take

Hi! I have bc for second time. Her2+, but they are not sure if it’s a reoccurrence or new. Had lumpectomy the first time, double mastectomy this time. I’m getting taxotere (spelling?), carboplatin, and Herceptin. They also want to include Perjeta, but I have refused as it’s only a 2% better survival rate and the GI side effects are supposed to be bad…and I have Ulcerative Colitis. Anyone here have a similar situation or info regarding g this drug? 

Hi Mari22,

Thank you for your post.

I am sorry to see that you haven’t had any response yet. I am hoping my response will help the members to see it and share their experience.

Please remember that for any clinical question, our breast care nurses are here and happy to talk things through.
