Hi Hanni,

We're sure you'll be hearing from lots of members soon about their experiences with Kadcyla.

In the meantime, you may want to check out the main Breastcancer.org site's pages on Kadcyla, including information on what to expect and side effects of the medication.

We hope this helps! Keep us posted how it goes!

Hi Hanni:

I started a clinical trial with Kadcyla back in Oct 2014. From what I gather, most people have very little Side Effects from this targeted treatment. However, I was hit with a lot of stomach pain about 7 days after infusion. I hope your treatment is much easier.
