    I am 51 and Stage IIIC HER2/NUE Positive. I did chemo first because we could not get clear margins, then couldn't finish my last to major chemos because of congestive heart failure from the herceptin. Had surgery a mastectomy and then radiation. I rang the bell last Thursday and it was great and you too will be there in no time. Just stay on them about your treatments and you become the protector of what needs to be done. I am continuely asking when is this and what and why, or how come this hasn't been taken care. If I think the smallest thing is wrong I ask for a scan or a MRI. I know it sounds like I am nuts but they too are human and can miss things and this Cancer belongs to me and I AM IN CHARGE! God bless you and you will survive this.

    Hi, I am Rhonda and I am too a HER2/NUE Positive diagnosed about a year ago. I am 51. How is everything going with you? I am finally beginning to feel halfway decent again.

    Procedure or Surgery (Mastectomy): Mastectomy done June 6, 2011 because I couldn't finish my chemo treatments because of heart failure. What a shock that was, but it was necessary. The worst part was the bags for drainage....

    Side Effects (Other): I just decided to put all of mine under other! There are so many. Your skin and everything you have on your body changes, but not your soul. I was going to save my heart but that even changed with complications. I lost my hair, eyebrows, eyelashes, nose hairs (very important and when you don't have them it's bad), swelling all over, toenails coming off and oozing, fingernails are like paper thin, a constant cough that never leaves, FATIGUE, nausitated, DIARRAHea, headaches and every bone in my body hurts at times.

    Side Effects (Bladder problems): Everytime I have a Herceptium treatment I end up with a urinary tract infection. Been on antibiotics and AVOS almost the entire time. The only time I really received a break was in May, June and July.
