5 days ago · HER2 positive & HER2 negative: I have both at the same time in Breast Cancer

WOW….. I hope you read my initial post. But just to quickly recap, I was diagnosed in April 2015 with HR+HER2- invasive ductile carcinomas. 2 surgeries/8 rounds of chemo/33 rounds of radiation and then declared NED until August 2019 when it came back in my chest. We thought it was negative & started Ibrance but about 30 days in we discovered it was HER2+…..& switched to Herceptin/Perjeta with a Faslodex shot. But in Jan 2020 we discovered lesions in my neck/spine that turned out to be HER2-. (My neck fractured… which resulted in 10 rounds of radiation & a very restrictive neck brace from 01/25-06/29)

It appears the + is responding well to Herceptin/Perjeta/Faslodex. The – is a bit more stubborn. I started Piqray in May, I am into round 3 of the Piqray and it appears it might be working 🙏🏽Scheduled to check my tumor marker again in about 3 weeks. If it’s going down we will stay with Herceptin/Perjeta/Faslodex/Piqray. I remain optimistic and faithful. This journey requires a positive attitude always…..otherwise cancer wins . Don’t give in….. Don’t give up….. Don’t give out!

Unfortunately Arimidex did not work as well as I expected for me.

Hello All, I am still battling HER2 + and HER2- at the same time the + appears to be responding to Herceptin and Perjeta. I started Piqray for the negative about 45 days ago & will know soon if it is getting the HER2 negative under control. Please let me know if anybody else has both a negative and a positive going on at the same time. Thanks

Originally diagnosed with HR+ER + HER2 negative in 2015. Surgeries/chemo/radiation then declared NED. Reoccurrence in September 2019 but this time HER2 positive. I started Herceptin/Perjeta. In January 2020 new cancer was detected but this time HER2 positive and so we added Ibrance and Faslodex. The HER2+ is responding but the HER2 negative is progressing. I am awaiting results of a Foundation 1 test now. Working with local oncologist and oncologist from Duke.

Would love to hear if anyone else is having a similar experience

Originally diagnosed in April 2015 HR+ER+ HER2 neg. 2 surgeries/8 rounds of chemo/33 rounds of radiation and then declared NED. Started Arimidex in Jan 2016. Cancer came back in September 2019 but presented as HER2 +. I started Herceptin/Perjeta but in January 2020 we discovered more tumors and these presented as HER2 neg so we added Ibrance and faslodex. The HER2 + is responsive to treatment but the HER2 negative is progressing. Seeing local oncologist and I have been to Duke for a consultation. I am currently waiting on the results of a Foundation 1 test to determine which treatment or clinical trial might be a possible course of action. The good news is, I am experiencing no pain or obvious symptoms.
