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

There is a lot of information about Herceptin. Put it in the search box at the top of the page.

Which hospital you're going for her treatment? My mother was advised trastuzumab.She completed 4 cycles of trastuzumab,carboplatin and paclitaxel.

Thaks for kind would really be a big help....

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.

It is a cancer hospital situated in thakurpukur, kolkata

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
