One month ago, my 75 year old mom was diagnosed with ER-/PR-, Her2 positive breast cancer with two positive lymph nodes out of 15 that were removed. Ten days ago, she underwent modified radical mastectomy.
She has a history of atrial fibrillation and type 2 diabetes. Due to this, the doctor recommends no adjuvant treatment (no Herceptin). Since her tumor is Her2 positive, we are concerned about the high risk of recurrence and metastases.
Would she be a candidate for any treatment in the USA, without cardiac toxicity ? Even though the surgery and follow-up was done at a very good cancer center in a developing country, the doctors may be on the conservative side. We can arrange for her travel to this country, if there are better treatment options for her here. Please let me know your suggestion.
