Hello, I was just wondering if there were any ladies out there who have had neoadjuvant chemo? I've finished the chemo but I'm still on herceptin, pertuzamab and tamoxifen. I'm pre menopausal and I was offered ovary suppression instead of tamox but I chose the latter. I've read conflicting reports that tamox might not be the best if her2 positive as well. I was just looking for success stories from ladies who were er+ and her2+ who had neoadjuvant chemo and then a year of herceptin and 5-10 years of tamoxifen, many thank
