Diagnosed stage 2b in July 2003 (2.3 cm, HER2+, ER-/PR-, 7+ nodes). Treated with mastectomy (with immediate DIEP flap reconstruction), AC + T/Herceptin (off label). Cancer advanced to lung in January 2007 (1 cm nodule). Started Herceptin every 3 weeks. Lung wedge resection April 2007. Cancer recurred in lung April 2008. RFA of lung in August 2008. 2nd annual brain MRI in October 2008 discovered 2.6 cm cystic tumor in left frontal lobe. Craniotomy October 2008 (ER-/PR-/HER2-) followed by targeted radiation (IMRT). Coughing up blood February 2009. Thoractomy July 2009 to cut out fungal ball of common soil fungus (aspergillus) that grew in the RFA cavity. No cancer, only fungus. Still continuing on Herceptin. Praying for NED forever!!
