Hi, It’s my 2nd time too (3rd if you count DCIS for which I had surgery and radiotherapy).
Last time I had 1 Fec followed by 5 TC, Radiotherapy and a year of Herceptin. Took Tamoxifen for 2 years. Gutted to have to go through this all again. Makes me wonder how effective the previous regime was though this time I’m HER 2 negative.
Good luck. Hopefully we’ll get through it again.
Oh bless you Cara. You've survived once, you can do it again lovely. I have a colleague who had breast cancer, and got it again while she was pregnant. She's had all sorts of treatment too.
I can't offer any advice, but I wish you all the best with your journey second time around

Hi all! Has anyone had TC chemo along with perjeta & herceptin? I was originally diagnosed in Feb 2016 and had FEC-T, Herceptin then double mx and then Tamoxifen which I came off after almost 2 years to have a baby. I went back on for 7 months then stopped as didn't realise that my risk of blood clots is high and oncologist said that the risk of taking it was equal to the benefits. Anyway, here I am again 4 years later with exact same type and seems to be along my scar. Due to start my new regime in 2 weeks and very nervous about how my heart will cope a 2nd time round.
