I'm a year past chemo (taxol, carboplatin) and Herceptin. I see online I have 50/50 chance of surviving HER 2 positive -er-pr 5 years. After that the stats get better--something like 69% chance to get to 10 years. Feeling much more optimistic and at peace with all this now, but think I'll never be carefree again. Have a wonderful life--want desperately to stay well!
My doctor says I have a "fair chance" of surviving this. Would love some success stories.
Any advice? Many thanks--and good wishes to all.

I didn't see anyone reply to you but i can say that i was first diagnosed in 1999 with er+her2neu+; then in 2004 i was her2neu+ er/pr-. I'm still here and cancer free.

Hi! 2012 HER +. One year of chemo and mastectomy. I am fine now. I live my life to the fullest! I refer to it as a bump in the road. Just keep going to your check ups. I don't usually think about it anymore.

I do kind of hate that my hair didn't come back so good!😉

Grateful,

I want to clarify something. My hair did come back, just not as thick.

Didn't want to worry you.💁
