I am writing this post on behalf of my mother, 47 Years Old Home Maker.
She was dignosed with early stage breast cancer on 04-July-2013.
With ER 60 % , PR 60 % and HER 2 Equivocal.
It surely has been a life changing news for us in the family and have been running from pillar to post ever since.
Coming back to my mothers situation, we are determined to give her the best possible treatment.
She had undergone right brest surgury and then we started cancer treatment under the guidence of Dr. S.H. Advani
at Sushrut Hospital Mumbai.
She finally started the chemo on 2nd August 2013.
2 Cycles of Epithral + Endoxan + 5 FU on every 21st Day
1 FEC (5 Fluoroacil + Epirubicin + Cyclophosphamide)
3 Cycles of Taxol + Herceptine on every 21st Day
3 Cycles of Herceptine alone on every 21st Day.
She was fine and we were doing bi-yearly checkups until October-2017. She was dignosed with Metastatic breast with mets in bones,liver.
We again started treatment at the guidence of Dr. S.H. Advani(Padmashree Awardee) at Sushrut Hospital Mumbai.
I have tried to find answer through the doctors as well as internet research, but yet to have complete clarity -
1. Dr S.H. Advani has suggested Kadcyla but when taken a second opinion with Dr Shona Nag (Pune), according to her
Kadcyla is last option. Metastatic breast cancer treatment should start with Pertuzumab (Perjeta) + Hecreptine.
2. Timings of PET Scans
Would love to hear some learned opinions on the same. Bit urgent as I have less time to decide.
Thank you all for going through it. All opinions/suggestions are most welcome. Wish everybody battling this terrible disease the very best.
Strength and Love to you and your family.
Her Loving Son,
