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!

Hello strong lovely ladies

Im 38 1cm tumor in right breast which i found early.

I had stage 2 her2+ estr+prog+ lumpectony, node was clear surrounding tissue clear.. I have good 80% chance of being all clear with no treatment. Going through all that would give a17% rise.

I'd love to hear from anyone still ok after no treatment !!

alice - cancermath (lifemath) does not take Her2 treatment into consideration, but the PREDICT calculator does. I think it is more accurate for those of us have treated Her2+ BC, you can see the delineation in the calculator about how many more are alive after treatment with surgery, chemo, targeted therapy (Herceptin), and hormonal therapy. Just be aware that this is a UK site so you need to enter your tumor size in millimeters rather than centimeters, just multiply by 10. Here is a link:

Mitch - thanks for posting. Positive stories are always helpful. I don't consider myself far enough out yet, but hopefully I'll get there.
