Herceptin and heart damag

Posted by

I have Grade 2 Her2+ lobular cancer. I have had a mastectomy,12 weekly doses of Taxol followed by 15 infusions of Herceptin.

Before I started Herceptin I was ‘borderline’ and I trundled on till it was stopped at 15 because the vef had gone down.

I had a final echo three months after Herceptin stopped and I have just had the result.......the percentage was 35 %....apparently better than the previous one !

I am already taking Ramipril.

I really need to hear from anyone who has stopped Herceptin and whose heart has mended.

I would also like to know how to make this print bigger !

Thank you so much.
