Adriana - what is your diagnosis? Stage/ grade/ ER/PR positive? Are you expecting surgery too? Soundslike this may be a recurrent cancer? If you could go to My Profile and fill in your specs we would be better able to respond. Herceptin is usually given with a kick start of taxol or taxotere but you didn't mention that. The Zometa is for bones.
