    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Targeted therapy): After recurrence and surgery, Iam lucky didn't have to do more chemo according to surgery results, and back to continue with Herceptin-Trastuzumab, had to complete a year. I feel like already complete it, but no...with all the obstacles still have four!! more rounds to go......... uffffff, got tired bringing all that back.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): It didn't go as expected, because surgeon had to do drastic procedure with the help of a plastic surgeon to keep cancer out once and for all. Big scar.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Two more rounds of taxol, in combination with radiation to stop cancer that spread to the skin. More side effects.

    Side Effects (Nerve damage (peripheral neuropathy)): Strong pain, had to use morphin as pain killer. Was the result of combination between chemo and herceptin.
