Breast sore on Hercepetin


Re: Breast sore on Hercepetin

Hi Deb


I’m only hazarding a guess as herceptin was ruled out for me but I’m going by what my oncologist said to me when discussing my post-chemo and post-radiotherapy side effects. Apparently the steroid given with each chemo disguises a lot of possible side effects to the point where you either never know you had them (in my case, zero nausea) or you are unaware until the weeks after chemo stops (in my case, peripheral neuropathy and neuropathic pain). Certainly, some chemo effects develop ‘long’ after you’ve stopped chemo. Perhaps it’s that - but it’s my suggestion, not a diagnosis. I’d ring the breast care team here tomorrow for a more informed answer.


I hope the discomfort eases for you. Good luck with your recovery,
