Re: Side effects from Herceptin only (after 6 TCH)?

Hi daugher1...

I spoke/saw my oncologist yesterday...he is going to have a heart moniter on me while I receive my next Herceptin infusion.

At this point, I'm wondering if it is an accumulative effect that leads up to the possible severe Herceptin side efffects...

It is my prayer that this was a one time episode with me as I know Herceptin is my/our saving Grace!!

Keep us updated about you mother!! Hang in there...prayers your way!!!

Re: Side effects from Herceptin only (after 6 TCH)?

Good luck Susan! Hope things go great with you. My mum's getting ready for her Radiation treatment and the oncos are going to evaluate her LFT and see whether she's fit for RT next week.
Meanwhile, we continue to seek second opinions from some Primary Investigators of the HERA and other high volume Herceptin users all the while hoping for some information that will help us establish whether we go ahead ahead with Herceptin or Tykerb. The dilemma continues...
