THE TWO PLANS

Both plans include:
-Hysterectomy
-Weekly Bone Strengthening Infusions
-Radiation vs Cyberknife vs Cryoablation

We know that the lesions are Estrogen receptor + so both plans will include hormonal therapy.
Plan #1
ER(estrogen) + / HER2 -
(this plan is for the rest of my life)
-Change my hormonal pills
(I will take 2 for the rest of my life)
-PET scans every 3-4 mos.
-monthly blood work
-and monthly office visits

Plan #2
ER+ / HER2 +
(because the HER 2 is a different kind of cancer, I would have to start all over with a different type of treatment.)
(Need another Port for infusions)
-Intravenous Chemo
 every 3 weeks, x6 treatments
-Targeted therapy-chemo, but a different drug
 every 3 weeks for about a year.
-Start hormonal therapy- this would be one of the pills from above indefinitely.
-PET scans every 3-4 mos.
-monthly blood work
-and monthly office visits
