I'm sure like Wendy says that your surgeon would tell you if there were any increased risks with Herceptin. The only thing i found when having delayed reconstruction surgery was that nobody seemed to know (i mean secretary's and theatre booking staff, i missed my first theatre slot because my BC nurse forgot to ring me after the MDT - i was devastated to say the least). should stop the Tamoxifen for at least 14 days prior to surgery due to the increased risk of blood clots. Are you aware of this recommendation.?
