    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
