      Hi Alyce. I was diagnosed with triple positive inflammatory breast cancer last year. I had chemotherapy, bilateral mastectomy, and radiation. I will be on herceptin infusions until November and on anastrozole indefinately.

      I had infiltrating ductal carcinoma 18 years ago. For that I had a lumpectomy, radiation, and 5 years of Tamoxifen. They didn't do HER2 analysis back then so I was only double positive that time.

      Hi Alyce. I was diagnosed with left breast stage 2 invasive ductal cancer that was estrogen and progesterone positive and right breast stage 1 invasive ductal cancer that was HER 2, estrogen and progesterone positive. Had bilateral mastectomies 1/2011, did chemo 2/2011- 6/2011, radiation 7/2011-8/2011and Herceptin infusion every 3 wks from 3/2011-3/2012.
      I am sorry for your diagnosis and what you are going through!
