    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)
