JETS is absolutely right. Herceptin is given for HER2+ and is infused every 3 weeks for 12 months so has to be given for the first 6/8 with Chemo. I am two years on from the end of FECT 100 8 sessions in total. The Chemo really is doable.
Good luck with the rest of your treatment.

Morning ladies. Can anyone answer my question?
I had left MX and SNR on Wednesday as had grade 3 invasive lump (40mm) and invasive calcification. Now know I am both HR and HER2 +. My surgeon said radiotherapy was almost certain and chemo likely but this was before HER2 result was known. They have already talked about going on hormone tablet and Herceptin at some point. Does anyone know or have been in similar situation and can say how likely chemo is? Chemo is the thing I have the biggest hang up about but I suspect I will need both radio and chemo. Don't get results following op for 2-3 weeks which seems an age away.
On the plus side feeling good after MX skin just feels tight and bruised-wonder if they let an elephant stand on my chest!!! Jules xx
