How many doses is a year worth of Herceptin? If you had to take a break and interrupted treatment did you have to start year over? Did you have weekly or 21 day dose?

    I got my herceptin at first with the chemo every three weeks for 5 treatments n then every three months for another 7 a total of one year. I was not given an option to interrupt treatment unless of course it affected my heart.

    It's 52 treatments. For weekly that is. I do it weekly. I missed 4 weeks when I had my DIEP surgery. Onc wasn't worried about it.
