    Herceptin for Breast cancer

    Experiences after 1 year Herceptin and 1 year tamoxifen: hot flashes with anxiety and depression, weight gain 13 kg, sweating especially in the evening and at night, Herceptin now finished, only for one more year Zometa, but momentary well-being is not good: extreme hot flashes and repeated weight gain although Herceptin is already finished. Taking tamoxifen for 4 more years: dry vagina, no longer in the mood for sex, depression with anxiety, no longer able to withstand load, sweating immediately under stress, total desirelessness and very strong increase in weight gain

    Since I get Herceptin I have very big problems with my heart. I have never had a high blood pressure but now it is unfortunately so. Likewise, I suffer from office shortage in stress.

    Herceptin for Breast cancer

    During my 2007 Herceptin Therapy, I gradually developed circulatory problems, high blood pressure, and also cardiac arrhythmias, which are still not resolved. I am currently getting ACE inhibitor 10mg. I would be interested to know if my complaints really come from the Herceptin. After my breast cancer surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, my body and soul have been through a lot. Maybe there are several factors together.

    Herceptin for Breast cancer

    Actually, I can not say much about the effectiveness, because I still get it now and you have to wait and see if there is no new tumor. But Herceptin gives a very good chance of getting a grip on this rather aggressive type of cancer and is also quite well tolerated compared to chemotherapy. About the price-performance ratio, I can not say anything, only appreciate.

    Side effects: No side effects

    Herceptin for Breast cancer

    I got EC 4 times and Taxotere 4 times each with Herceptin, had some side effects, especially after taxotere, such as respiratory distress, bone pain, nails fragility. But the success speaks for itself, my tumor has completely receded and only the tumor bed had to be removed. Everything was worth it and it was also very bearable. Now I get to prevent a recurrence for another year of herceptin and new side effects I have until now no. I can only try to encourage any woman, because as bad as the chemotherapy is often described, it was really not for me, she was a fly-shit to what I was previously reported. I wish all those affected courage and happiness, then go lighter

    Side effects: No side effects

    Herceptin for Breast cancer

    After 3 FEC and 3Doxetacel chemos at intervals of 3 weeks each I received 28 (+ 8 times Boost) irradiation, then 1 every 3 weeks of herceptin infusions, then 2 years Zoladex, and must now take 5 years of tamoxifen tablets. Since the Chemos and then through the year Herzeptin I increased extremely, although I could not eat much. I have increased from 86 kg to 102 kg, then the weight has settled and since then not changed. However, that is also on increased As a result, I have been suffering from lymphatic drainage on a regular basis. Since the treatments, I have not been physically resilient and fatigued, I often have circulatory problems (low blood pressure), numbness in the fingers and toes, loss of libido, hot flashes , Joint pain (especially hand and arm joints)

    With the administration of the taxanes (three infusions), the infusion of Herceptin (18 doses of every three weeks) was also started. The side effects that have persisted without taxanes and Femara (after five months of continued use!) Include: tingling in the feet; the morning stiffness of the hands still occasionally, but a finger can no longer be moved properly; Arbitrary burning of the skin on approximately palm-sized areas on the legs; Forgetfulness; Lack of concentration; despite rapid fatigue, sleep and sleep disorders; listlessness; brittle, fast-breaking fingernails. Six weeks after the last dose of herceptin, the skin from the hairline inflamed almost into the groin, which was associated with intense itching and burning.
