I've been on max doses of carboplatin, taxotere, and herceptin for almost a year now and while it seems to be controlling the disease (last year I saw a lot of progression, this year not so much as my PET scans are showing mixed results but mostly a decrease), I just can't take the side effects. It's really starting to negatively impact my quality of life. This chemo/targeted therapy treatment is the worst I've experienced in the 6 years of having MBC.
Has anyone been on this combo of treatment? If so, for how long?
I'd like to switch to another treatment but I'm scared that it won't work and I'll regret stopping this current treatment.
