      I took Herceptin every 3 weeks for 1 year. I believe this is a pretty standard amount of time for a HER2 positive diagnosis. Best wishes!

      One year is the standard protocol, but it can be less or more under certain specific circumstances.

      My current plan is the same as Judy's: Every 3 weeks for one full year.

      The standard is one year. There is debate as to whether one or two years is best for disease free progression. From what I have read, one year is considered as effective as two. Stay tuned :-)
