What is the stage of your mother cancer?

You seem to be on right path. You will need Herceptin x 1 year.

Your Oncologist should be able to discuss with you the costs and possible discounts available on this treatment. On an average one years treatment is around 9 lakhs or so.

You can information about Herceptin from the internet or search from this forum. There are over 100 blogs...

All the best

Can you please tell the chemotherapy medicines? Herceptin is very effective med as said and read but very very expensive medicine too.Please do ask your oncologist about the side effects of the chemo meds.

As far as i know the medicine of herceptin therapy is trastuzumab. my mother already received the first one & the next one is on 17 june!! one of the major side effect we notice after taking herceptin is her physical laxness@ Debroy
