During : During removal of hygroma some of the parasympathetic fibers innervated the skin. The treatment would be Botox injections into the arrea typically after few injections patients will feel much better. If that does not help a more complex operation can be attempted with placement of the accellular graft to provide a spacer beten parasympathetic endings and skin.

Up to 1 year's worth: Herceptin (trastuzumab) can be given together with initial chemotherapy for the first 4-6 months then subsequently by itself for a total of 1 year. If chemotherapy was given first without Herceptin (trastuzumab) then Herceptin (trastuzumab) can be given for a full year by itself. The usual cycle runs every 3 weeks (17-18 cycles in one full year).

The optimal treatment duration is currently unknown. Trials are being done to see if short term therapy is just as beneficial with less side effects, like cardiac dysfunction. For now, one year of treatment is accepted as the time period of therapy.
