Hello, I was dx in February with Her2+ BC. I went through the chemo, the mastectomy and now in the midst of radiation. I will finish that in December and will be on the Herceptin through March. 

I, like so many BC survivors, have a constant fear of metastisis. I can't shake it. I think what I need is to read stories of those with my type of BC that have survived for years with no recurrence. Please share your stories with those of us that are still in treatment or just finishing that are scared.

Thanks!

Newly redx'd. Current is after bilateral mastectomy and ooph/hyster in 2008.

Surgery was Weds the 25th January. Biopsy path

My question is... as I wait for final path, do all with HER2 positive do chemo and Herceptin? My onco told me so far

Radiation 6 weeks

Herceptin every three weeks for a year

And anti estrogen therapy for life.

Why does it seem they just aren't dropping the bomb of chemo yet?

I want facts not " oh we will tell her that later"

I see many on here with no lymph involvement but chemo.

My stage is 1 right now

Thank you so much ladies

Danix5--My best friend had ER/PR- but HER+ and her doctor told her that he gives chemo to all HER+ patients along with Perjeta and Herceptin. And since you're ER+ they'll want you to do Tamoxifen or an AI as well
