Hi dotgos, I am also Her2+. I’ve had a mastectomy and will be starting chemo next week. I’m a bit nervous but am looking forward to having one cycle down so I know what to expect from then on.

Hi dotgos, I have finished my treatment now. Her2+ lumpectomy, chemo every 3 weeks for 4 and half weeks. Radiation for 4 weeks. Im at the other end with an 'all clear' and feeling traumatised. For me it was a shocking roller coaster ride that has just dumped me out in a heap. I'm a mess, but alive, still spinning from it so my advice is fasten your seatbelt, hang onto emotional support, get spiritual (ask them to come help you) and come to know just how strong you really are

Hi JAnuary 222, that’s great news that you are on the other side , well done, sounds like a tough journey.
I am still waiting for an appointment for chemotherapy and feeling very nervous, terrified I will be nauseous and I’ll all the time.
The waiting is hard, and I am hoping my imagination is worse than the reality.
The very best of luck and thanks for the advice xx
