Her2 Positive

My tumor was removed through a masectomy but the markers came back as HER2 positive.  Hercepton seems to be the treatment for this type of tumor.  Anyone out there have this therapy ? What was your experience with side effects, length of treatment and any other advice you could share.
Thanks
Ro

Ro,

You may want to go to the main forum at www.*************.org and post this question. Lots of ladies on that site are Her2neu positive and on or have been on Herceptin.
