Recurrent HER2+ Suspicious lesions on liver
I have been a survivor of HER2+ – first diagnosed Oct 2012. I had been doing great but #s went whacky in January. First colonoscopy found one polyp that did end up being malignant. That doctor feels she got it all and will be doing a 2nd biopsy next Thursday. The CT scan showed lesions on liver “suspicious of breast cancer mets” and suspicious of a very aggressive tumor. Biopsy was done Tuesday; I will find out Monday if it is HER2+ mets or if it is yet another type of cancer. Seems like either way, things do not look good. I have questions about chemo when the tumor is in your liver – whether it is mets or not. I had a really hard time with chemo before and wonder how in the world a damaged liver can deal with all that poison. Is there even a chance to live a remotely comfortable life – however long it might be – when HER2+ comes back?
