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
