Thank you to those ladies who have continued to contribute to this thread. The objective was to let women who were having herceptin side effects know they were not alone. To reassure them that it was being caused by herceptin, not something worse and to help have some confidence when telling their oncologists that they were having difficulties with it. Especially when oncs seem to dismiss it as not having side effects.
It was not meant to scare those having it or waiting to have it. it is not in the same league as chemo, but can still effect peoples lives in a variety of ways.
I found it very reassuring to know I was not alone in having palpitations etc. We are all different and some are effected more than others and I hope there are enough posts on here to let people know that it is possible to not experience any problems on herceptin.
