      I am HER2 positive,ER positive and PR positive. Currently undergoing chemo (Herceptin, Taxotere, Carboplatin). I have a bilateral mastectomy scheduled for September, then 11 rounds of Herceptin only. I won't know about radiation until after the surgery and we are discussing removing the ovaries after the breast surgery. The good news is that HER2 positive responds very well to chemo. My biggest tumor shrank 1 cm after the first round of chemo.

      Hi, JPTucker. Thanks for the response. I am on TCH as well & am 3+. It's great that your team is measuring the shrinkage of your largest tumor. I will have images done at the end of the month but my Surgeon is very pleased with the decrease in size of the tumor so far. I have a tentative surgery time frame, but I haven't decided what kind of surgery yet.

      I am HER2 and ER positive. I have just finished my 2nd round of my 3 chemo cocktail mix with 2 more plus radiation to go. It hasn't been nearly as bad as I thought it would be.

      Hi. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1996 and had a double mastectomy. In 2001 the cancer returned and I was put on Armidex and had radiation. In 2010 I was taken off Armedix because the doctor said I was cancer free. In 2013 cancer returned. I am ER psotive, PR Positive and Her2 positive. They are planning to put me on Herceptin and Armedix again. I was wondering if anyone knows the prognosis in stopping this aggressive cancer with this new drug. I must tell you I have been fighting this for 17 years and I am getting tired.
