I did 52 weeks of Herceptin and so far as I know I'm fine. I took the first few weeks with Taxol, which gave me side effects that I still have, but which I was expecting due to my research. I had to quit the heart tests after the first year or two due to the fact that I didn't have insurance, but so far all seems to be well! The whole chemo thing was a nightmare, but after the Red stuff and the Taxol, Herceptin seemed like a piece of cake, except for going every week and worrying about my heart...and later I read it's not good for lungs...anybody had trouble with lungs yet? Considering I'm 58 and this all took place in 2005-2006, chemo ended may 2006, I feel pretty good. Hope this helps?
