well i just threw the docs for a loop. apparently i'm not totally HER2/neu negative since the tumor in my arm overexpressed proteins. soooo... my whole treatment plan of xeloda and taxotere is off. they want me to do carboplatin/taxotere with herceptin, which is a great drug i hear. but i will have to do weeky infusions throuout 4-6 chemo cycles and then every 3 weeks for a year. i am so floored. i had everything figured out and was going to start next week after my dental work was done.
has ANYONE ever had this strange path report result? i know my docs are scratching their heads and talking about me. it's really important that you get the FSCH test done on your tissue so they can test for this very important gene. herceptin by genentech is a really effective drug for metastatic patients.
well, keep in touch.
