I've been a lurker on this forum. I was diagnosed in April. Started neoadjuvant chemo in June. I'm on herceptin, perjeta carbo and docetaxel. I felt the lump shrink by day 3 of 1st chemo and my onc could not feel the lumps by the time cycle 2 was due. I was really pleased with that. I still have my moments and having chemo is difficult I've been admitted into hospital twice the most recent was on Sunday as I was so dehydrated from the diarrhoea that my electrolytes and potassium levels were low. The onc won't reduce the chemo. I still have 2 cycles to go!!! Sending positive vibes to everyone!!
