      I was on Taxol & Herceptin in my initial treatment. I have triple positive MBC. It shrunk my nodule in my lung.

    Other Care (complicated by a stroke suffered in 2017): I'm not sure how the treatment is going to complicate stroke recovery. I'm seriously thinking about bypassing traditional treatment and looking for alternate treatments. My doctors haven't addressed it.

      I have the same type of cancer as @meseq and @Jouska, and I also had the same treatment. It wasn't easy, but it was worth it. I celebrated being cancer-free for 5 years in December. I strongly recommend conventional treatment.

      Did anyone have any side effects from Herceptin and Perjeta? Taxol too.

      The only side effect from Herceptin was a runny nose at random times, an easy fix with personal size tissues in your purse or pocket. Taxotere was a different story, I lost my hair all over, eyebrows and lashes too. My taste buds went haywire nothing tasted good until I learned to drink a frozen drink (slurpee) during that infusion. I felt flu like for a couple days and had some diarrhea. With proper anti nausea drugs and anti diarrhea drugs I was able to take a week off after each infusion and work two weeks before the next infusion
