Mine was a long journey as probably the same for others w/HER2+ diagnosis in Sept 2010 followed by 12 mos Herceptin which FINALLY ended in 2012
I thought I was done....done for good.
July 2015, 3 years later, I though my new lump was just scar tissue from my lumpectomy & lymphectomy, so in September 2015, I visited my breast cancer doc hoping to be reassured.
He did a biopsy right in the spot. I don't recall the # of days it took for me learn my cancer had returned. I was even more bewildered when Doc told me is was not the same cancer.
Triple Negative were his words. More agreed ice to treat since It appeared back inter same spot of the same breast as ...
I received a baseline MUGA before starting Herceptin in 2011 and periodically through my course of 12 months treatments and upon completion.
I have not had any more MUGA since 2012.
I have told many that I am so very grateful for those brave women who participated in the Hercepyin trials. Their courage allows to be here today.
