    New to this site - I just finished up fourth round of Taxotere along with weekly Herceptin, looking forward (ha) to mastectomy in January then AC beggining in February, followed by radiation. Have reached a point where I am sick of this. Kept my spirits up for the first four months, but am tired of being cheerful and I'm so exhausted, I get tired brushing my teeth. Any sage words of advice?
