Hi everyone I haven't been here for a while. Finished Docetaxel in February, which I had with herceptin, and things have been going along much easier than when on I was on the chemo. However my oncologist has told me I may need a break from herceptin as my heart function has dropped to 54% and I have to have another gated heart test plus an echo cardio one before I see him in August. If it is 50% or lower I will be put on a break. I am having anxiety attacks about this as I am afraid that while on the break, the cancer may get in again. Has anyone had a break from herceptin? If so how long? Do you just pick up from where you left off, or start all over again?
Hope someone can give me some answers or questions to ask for when I see the onc again in early August
