Just know that the people on this board can help with your fear...they are all pretty courageous and very helpful...these are scary times. Also know that you have courage -- as it is not an absence of fear, but struggling through in spite of fear. Take care...my thoughts are with you.

Gerri -
Know exactly how you feel! I, too, had MAJOR liver mets over 2 years ago. Enrolled in a new trail with taxol, navelbine & herceptin. This combo knocked it out with weekly treatments for about 6.5 months. My doc advised 3 extra treatments even though PET said NED. I grudgingly did that, and am still NED!

All best wishes for your infusions to kick out the tumors!
