Question Newbie here

On December 31, 2013 I received that dreaded phone call.. .it's cancer. I was diagnosed with stage 2, grade 2 Invasive Ductal Carcenoma. I did have a mastectomy on my left breast with the tumour being about 5 cm. I have completed my chemo treatments of AC/TH but have now been put on hold from continuing just the Herceptin as my last MUGA was not great. I went from 55% down to 40% so oncologist told me that's it, no more for you. I still my port-a-cath in as now I'm being sent to a cardiologist which I will be seeing this coming Thursday. Really concerned about not getting the full Herceptin of one year (only 4 treatments!). Terrified of recurrence. Am hoping to have other breast removed as a precaution, but everything is on hold due to bad MUGA results! ARG... on the good side... my hair is starting to grow out, I actually have fuzz all over my head now (last chemo was Aug. 9th!!!) so it does take quite awhile for it to grow in! Otherwise am doing okay, still have headaches all the time, neuropathy is hands is so much better, but not so much in feet. Anyone else in this position of only getting 4 Herceptin instead of the full year?
