Is Herceptin working and the need for scans

Is there any testing to see if herceptin is working? I am +++ very high so from what I can see my chances of herceptin preventing a recurrence are good but ....

Also after I get through the year of herceptin how often do others have scans etc? My oncologist has just said annual mammograms and nothing else.
