Re: Please post your two cents on Herceptin "side effects" real or perceived!

I am wondering if anyone is still talking about Herceptin Side effects? I am on maintenance treatment of Herceptin and Perjeta every three weeks indefinitely fo rthe maangement of Metastatic HER2+ breast cancer. I have noticed a couple of things the longer I have been on it. Easily fatigued, leg foot and ankle cramps or pain, neuropathy in my right hand and arm, horrible vision, sores and scabs in my nose. Anyone else have similar symptoms? I have also gained almost 30 lbs in two years without any change to my diet.
