Had to give up chemo

Hi, I had grade 2, HER2 positive, 2 cm lump with no lymph node involvement. Had a lumpectomy and all is well. I was supposed to have 3 FEC and 3 Taxotere followed by radiotherapy, Herceptin and Tamoxifen. I've only managed to have 2 chemo's and because I was so ill it was stopped and I've gone on to Herceptin and shortly will have the radiotherapy. I'm just terrified it will come back because I haven't managed to have all the chemo and I just wondered if anyone has gone through similar. My cancer has gone and all my treatment is adjuvent. I'm 49. Please help.
