Today is a treatment day.
For the first time ever, I will have Herceptin on its own (if you don't count the Demerol and Gravol I get to keep the shakes and fevers at bay).
Some people have almost no side effects with Herceptin. Some feel like they have the flu.
Will the fact that my body has such a strong response to Herceptin mean that I feel more of its side effects?
The break from chemotherapy is meant to help me heal and rebuild - physically and emotionally.
The break from chemo is also a risk.
Here's hoping it all works out for the best.
