    Good job!
    The first one is a big one, and now you know what to expect. I had a similar experience with my first chemo. HER2 positive means that you will almost certainly take a drug called Herceptin after your other treatments (or in conjunction) because your tumor overexpressed the HER2/NEU gene. Herceptin is a great drug for HER2 positive women. Good luck.
