I am so glad to have passed another milestone in my treatments. The Radiation was over last Tuesday and now I just go in for an Herceptin infusion every 3 weeks. The fatigue is finally starting to go away and I actually stayed on my feet almost the whole day today. Thank you L:ord, it can only get better from here.

I loved Herceptin, had no side effects and it worked better than anything else I have been on!  So glad you are starting to feel better.

I am also taking anastazole to block any estrogen production. The only side effect I can determine so far is aching joints. It's not as bad as during chemo though, not nearly. I can live with it.  have also started playing the mandolin and regular guitar again and can't wait for my calouses to build back up.
