Hi! I had very little response to TCHP so was switched from HP to Kadcyla in January. I just finished my 14th (& last) cycle at the beginning of Oct. I was tired and sleep longer than normal while I was on it and my potassium and magnesium levels stayed low, it other than that, it was a cake walk compared to TCHP. I had a few nosebleeds in the beginning and my mouth was dry a lot but that got better the longer I was on it. I have joint pain and have had it since I started Kadcyla but I believe that’s from the Arimidex because I started both at the same time (and I’ve been off Kadcyla for a month now and still have the joint pain). Regular exercise lessens the joint pain a lot.
Kadcyla can cause low platelets, but they should monitor that regularly, along with all your other numbers. Everyone is different, but from what I understand, most women have a similar response to Kadcyla so don’t worry too much. You’ve got the hard stuff out of the way
