      Thank you for link to the her2 site. I didn't have much info. on any of this, and it was driving me crazy. I don't know why this seemed to depress me more, but it did. Is the herpeticin all you did, or did you combine it with chemo and rads? Im still waiting on the path reports from my first surgery( hopeing all is clear.). How can anyone just patiently wait?????Again, Thank You.

'patiently waiting' is such an oxymoron!  Waiting is one of the hardest things a newly dx cancer patient needs to deal with.  Just try to distract yourself with family and friends and take it day by day, or even hour by hour.  It's tough....but you can do it.
I had Herceptin concurrent with taxotere, and when the 4 cycles of taxotere were done i continued the herceptin for a total of 1 year. I would have opted to continue past a year, but my onc was firm in saying that there weren't alot of studies showing if it helps or not.. (of course she said this with a smile and a hug).  I was then finished with my tx plan, which took a total of 11 months from surgery to end of herceptin.  whew.  They did monitor me with ekg's and muga scans, to be sure my heart was tolerating the ok... it did, thank goodness.
good luck and let me know if i can help you with anything else..when are the path reports due back? let us know how it goes... just remember seeing it in black and white on paper is NO picnic, but it's only words on paper.  Your future isn't determined in it, although it may seem that way.
