Globus, anxiety: Your symptoms are quite consistent with chronic anxiety and the lump feeling in your throat is typical of globus assuming your throat examination is normal. You're overly conscious of your breathing pattern which is consistent with anxiety. I feel you would be greatly helped by stress management therapy. Discuss this with your physician.

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.

See a doctor: This no longer sounds like influenza. If flu to begin with this can predispose you to secondary acute bacterial pneumonia which can be potentially very severe and even fatal. Please go to an emergency room asap and be examined and treated. Do not wait. Hope you are better soon.
A 36-year-old member asked:

Has anybody had a breast reduction and tummy tuck at the same time?

Dr. Marguerite Barnett

Yes: This is a very popular "mommy make-over" combo because women who have children often have abdominal bulges afterwards and the breasts may have enlarged/drooped. The procedures are safe to do at the same time if the patient is in good health otherwise and the doctor has experience with the procedure. Combining the two increases risks slightly so some people choose to do them separately.

Yes: I recomend you keep the throat clean. Rinse and swish after meals. Use an antiseptic mouth wash. Avoid feeding the invading organisms.
