I am 48. I was diagnosed with IDC in 08/2011. 2cm tumor, ER+ PR+ HER2+. With a close margin. I went through 6 * (Abbraxane + carboplatin + herceptin), 1/3wks. Then I finished 12 * Herceptin. 1/3wks. and Tamoxifen.
12/2013, I found a 1cm local recurrence ER+ PR - HER 2+. My oncologist plans to give me Adriamycin + Cytoxan, and Lapatinib and pertuzumab for HER2.
I read information on AC on the web and found information on side effects on heart several years after treatment, on the mouth, etc. Could Someone that have gone through AC long time ago, please let me know whether the medication have long term side effects on heart years afterwards?
Another oncologist suggest that I use Abbraxane again for 6 treatments, and also use herceptin + peyeta for HER2. He is also planning to put me menapause.
I am wondering which course I should go about. Any suggestions?
