Amber, I like helping others now I'm at the other side of treatment as I understand how scared you feel and how important survivor stories are. Once you have your treatment plan in place I recommend going in the 'going through treatment' thread on here where you can chat with others going through the same. I found that really helpful sanity-wise! Best wishes. Xxx
Hi Amber, sorry you find yourself here again after all this time. I had 8 rounds of chemo and here's my blog which you can read for some useful coping tips: http://Lifeafterlola.com. I'm 18 months on since diagnosis and doing really well. It's all doable but it ain't no walk in the park.
i didn't have Herceptin but know many that did and had heart monitoring throughout. This runs alongside chemotherapy. Hopefully someone will be here soon to offer reassurance on Herceptin that has gone through it. Best wishes. Xxxx
Hi, I was diagnosed 10 days ago with invasive ductal bc. Today I was told I am HER2 positive and will have chemo with herceptin before surgery.
anyone able to tell me how this goes? I am really concerned about weight gain as already massively overweight. I hear herceptin is the wonder drug though I have yet to see an oncologist who hopefully will give me news on prognosis etc.
