Hey all I am new to this breast site, even though I signed up a few weeks ago.
Iwas diagnosed with breast cancer in March and havesince had a lumpectomy, with centinnel node biospsy, ande they orginally thought that I would just need sugery and radiation, but aster the sugery, there was something in lymph nodes, thus had to start chemo.
Have had a terrible time with chemo, and allergic reactions etc.
I am now down to just had the 2nd last chemo(so 1 more) and it is Docataxel and Herceptin, which i shall have to take for the next year. Normally by this time after chemo, I am feeling fairly normal(as much as one can) and it is NOT happening. I am feeling like my head is ready to explode at times, and also pain comes and goes is various areas of my body, plus NO energy (even when I don't do anything)
I thought I had read some time ago, something about Herceptin, and Benedryl( which was suppossed to help a person feel better) Was this all in my head, or did I actually read it. Your help would be greatly apprecaited. Thank you
