Diagnosed in Sept 2016, mastectomy and 4 rounds of chemotherapy every 3 weeks, followed by a further chemo every week for 12 weeks. This was a 'nicer/kinder' dose with fewer side effects. Although every week was pretty full on. Found it hard to see the 'light at the end of the tunnel" when I started this. Amongst that was 17 doses of Herceptin - these were 3 weeks apart. After about 13 months it was finally all done. I am feeling back to my normal self physically - doing lots of walking/jogging with a friend several times a week and this has been amazing. Mentally pretty good but I do worry that being diagnosed with Her2 might be the undoing. Anyone else out there with a similar diagnosis. I am also on Letrozole as I'm oestrogen positive. Tiniest bit in one lymph node - so I tell myself I am lymph node clear... Stage 3 - which I wonder is that because it was Her2 which makes the cells grow quickly?? I am 47.
