Chemotherapy - NancyK

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Mixed Tumors, Breast Cancer. Posted on July 23, 2012 View this journey (10 Experiences)

Depending on your type of breast cancer you could have different drug therapies. Mine was HER2 positive and estrogen positive…so I had 26 weeks of Adriamycine, Cytoxan, and Taxol, followed by a year of Herceptin, and 6-years of an aromatase inhibitor, which is a pill. Up to that time I thought when you were sick you got a pill, but most chemotherapy is administered into your veins. I have a Port-A-Cath—you can’t see it but it’s right here under the skin—and that’s where all blood is drawn and where all drugs are administered. It makes it so much easier, you don’t even know it’s there, and I’ve had it for a long time now.
