Re: Phase III Randomized Study of Neoadjuvant Paclitaxel in Combination With Trastuzu

I started in April. I ended up in the control group, so am getting Herceptin. I started losing my hair from the Taxol around week 3, so ended up shaving it off. Other than that, I've been extremely lucky with virtually no other side effects from either drug.
Last week I had my first follow-up CT and Echo. Echo shows no changes so Herceptin is not affecting my heart, and all tumors/nodules have reduced in size.

Did you get the Neratinib? I've read that diarrhea can be pretty bad with it, but not for everyone.

How are you doing?
