Re: Headed to year 9

Well done Kym, you were very lucky to get the Herceptin. I was randomised to the observation arm of the HERA trial in 2004. My arm was lucky enough to be offered Heceptin in 2005 when the brilliant results came out. I then had it for 2 years.
Great to hear your success story.

DX Sept 03 age 40 Stage 2B Grade 3 mastectomy (after 2 prior breast conserving surgeries)
"at least" 2.3 cm 3/12 nodes ER+/PR+ Her2+++
8 FEC. Tamoxifen then Arimidex. Ovaries out.
"late" Herceptin for 2 years (18months after chemo) on HERA trial. finished Herceptin Nov 2007.
Multiple bone mets May 2012 and now liver August 2012.
Abraxne, Herceptin and Zometa.
