New Herceptin


Re: New Herceptin

Hiya Sarah Louise
Sorry I couldn't answer your query at all and sorry should have had the courtesy of answering you though.
Why not try " going through treatment" threads as lots of herceptin ladies post there with their side effects as herceptin is a primary treatment too. Try under targeted therapies there too ..I might just find soneone with the same complaint.

New Herceptin

Hi all, I'm on continued herceptin and have been for the past 6 years in that time it's gone from a 2 hour intravenous infusion to a 5 min injection in the leg, recently they have changed the drug in that instead of the nurses mixing 2 components together the drug comes pretty mixed in a syringe I've noticed that my migraines have increased (literally 1 a day at the moment) and I've had some back skin reactions at the injection site. Has anyone else had a problem with this new injection? Many thanks in advance for any help or advice. Xx
