heart attack after chemo into hercetin only

hello everyone, i just got the guts to join.. diagnosed march 2016,mastectomy April, then 6 infusions tch.. i did ok . depleted but holding my own..then i took two more doses of herceptin , supposed to continue until July 2017 but Dec 19th, on my BIRTHDAY i had mild heart attack!!!.
now i am conflicted whether to continue more herceptin ( the cardio gave the green light, my onc is worried).. I AM WORRIED..
doctors say that the "usual" heart issue from herceptin is congestive heart failure which they watch with the (what is it called? sonogram ?)
so my heart attack is unusual as a side effect.. the angiogram showed no heart disease, blocks or cholesterol in arteries..so that's good.. so why would i have a heart attack?? seems logical its from the hercpetin...
any thoughts or facts??
have any of you long term survivors only taken 6 months of herceptin?? has anyone had a heart attack after or around chemo??
