Although Claude's oncologist said that he was going to get herceptin only on his visit with her 20 feb , they decided at their staff meeting March 13 that they should add LV5FU2 again . so the treatment is now again Herceptin + LV5FU2
she feels there is not enough data on using herceptin alone to control EC.
Could those of you using herceptin alone describe your oncologists reasoning for using Herceptin only with no other chemo. Thanks a lot.
Claude is four years from diagnosis, two years from recurrence, was tested late for her2 , has now had two years of chemo , and one year of chemo + herceptin.
he is feeling pretty good and is active physically and has good appetite and has not had many side effects from chemo + herceptin.
all the best to all,
