Stopping transtuzumab (Herceptin) for surgery?
Long story short- they stopped my Herceptin for 6 weeks for my oncoplastic reduction. I was suppose to get my surgery tomorrow. I caught Covid and they cancelled my surgery and just did a re-excision instead. The might do a breast reduction in 3-4 weeks once pathology comes back and I'm not sure about all the delays.
I know trastuzumab and pertuzumab together can cause some wound healing issues.
Wondering about people who were just on Herceptin/trastuzumab? I called my medical oncologist to talk about it. If I end up with another surgery I'm just not comfortable with all these delays but wondering what's happened with other people and their Herceptin.
Thanks for sharing!
