Re: Decisions, decisions

Hey there, Joan! Nice to hear from you. I am wondering about the wisdom of taking a break from Herceptin when you have been so stable. I think of Flori (SoCalGal) who took a break a few years back after years of stability with negative results. PM her if you do not recall the details or read her posts from perhaps 4 years ago (if memory serves, which frankly it rarely does!).

I honestly do not know about the port issue except that to do infusions without it is so hard on the veins. Why not consider a metiport this time?

I wish you luck with whatever decision you make. Please let us know what you determine!

Smile On!
