Recurrent HER2+ Breast Cancer
In 2011 I went through 6 treatments (Jan - June) of chemo and a year of Herceptin (Jan - Dec). In May I found out I had recurrent HER2+ cancer and had 18 lymph nodes removed with only one cancerous. I have a clean PET Scan!  I am now undergoing 4 treatments of AC and 6 weeks of radiation will follow. I tried Lapatinib and was allergic to it. I've had a lumpectomy with 2 lymph nodes removed (1 w cancer), bi-lateral mastectomy with reconstruction, and just recently my lymph node removal surgery.

I am looking to communicate with another person who has/had recurrent HER2+ breast cancer.   I just need to hear that there are hopeful cases!
