One day should: Be fine for aspirin, or alka-seltzer, not sure what kind of cold medicine you consumed, but generally after one day most of those common drugs would be out of your system, enjoy your baby

A 44-year-old female asked:

Stage 3 breast cancer her2 positive how many herceptin (trastuzumab) cycle she must undergo?

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.

Check-up: How high is fever? What colors is drainage from nose? There could be many causes. Illness in children is most likely a virus and symptomatic control is usually all that is needed. I would advise you to a make an appointment with his pediatrician if you are concerned.

2 days late for my period, used condom with pull out method, could I be pregnant?

You might be: Condoms are not very effective by themselves because there is leakage around the base or they may leak. The pull out method is also very unreliable. We call people who count on the pull out method 'parents'. Check a pregnancy test in a few days. Check again 3-4 days after that as well to be sure.

Check a HPT: 2 days-late is common and so it is difficult to tell. You may want to do a home pregnancy test which is easy to do, fast, and quite accurate. If negative, waite 5-7 days and repeat and if still negative, likely it is negative. If positive, congrats and good luck.

Last night I had major tingling all over the palm or my right hand. I do computer based work all day and ipad at night. Is this carpal..?

Hand numbness: There is a good chance that what you are describing is carpal tunnel syndrome. If this continues wear a wrist splint at night. If this does not solve the numbness then you need to discuss this with your doctor.
