Hi Purple Lady, I had chemo because biopsy showed cancer was her2 positive, er positive and 6cm. The idea was to shrink the tumour before surgery which it did. Lumpectomy and snb mid December but results showed tumour had fragmented so needed mastectomy(mid January) to make sure all fragments were removed. Now need 15 rads, herceptin/perjeta every 3 weeks for 18 cycles( 8 completed) , hormone therapy ( 5 years) and bisphosphonates ( not sure if spelt right) so still feeling rollercoaster ride of emotions. I have just started taking Anastrozole 4 days ago. When did you start ? Having any issues? I feel like my life is still on hold for at least another eight months. Taking each step at a time is the way I get through.
