Re: Stage IV Survivors out there?

Hi Gift,

just wanted to let you know - had my first re-scan after 3 months of Herceptin / Perjeta / Xgeva only. They did CT, Breast US, blood work - and an Echo just to make sure my heart is dealing ok with the Herceptin.

I'm stable!

I know this does not make me a long term survivor, but it's a step on the way, and I was relieved to get confirmation that I don't seem to need Chemo at this point to keep the tabs on cancer...

I'm sure it will be the same for you!
