Side effects on Herceptin

Hi all, am just looking for some advice. Have had 6 rounds of Herceptin and approx 2 weeks after starting I have developed really bad heartburn but not in my chest rather in my stomach. When I mentioned this to one of the nurses they said that this is not one of the side effects and may be left over from chemo, but prior to starting Herceptin my heartburn/acid reflux had settled down nicely.

Thanks for any replies x

Hi,

I am on Herceptin and sometimes suffer heartburn. I saw my doc and got some Gaviscon Advance tablets which work quite quickly. Hope this helps.
