Same here Pinpandor. I'm triple negative. Would love to hear from some of those gals. Though I've been told that once most people get a couple of years under their belt, they tend to fall off of this sight. I'm at 19 months and counting.

Bella76,

I'm so sorry to hear of the new cancer. I developed a rare from of Hodgkins' lymphoma seven years after being diagnosed with BC--like you, totally unrelated to the first cancer. I'm doing fine now. How are you managing? Happy to listen/discuss via PM if you need a sympathetic ear/shoulder.

Hello Pip

Yes, I did have Herceptin - and the rest of the kitchen sink - and it worked well on my grade 3 tumour. Profile updated, so thanks for asking me about this invaluable part of my treatment.

I am hoping for the same results for you!
