I will start Chemotherapy Thursday, January 12.  I am scared because I don't know what to expect.  I am HER2+.

I think I will feel better once I get my 1st treatment out of the way.

Smarti many congratulations on getting through the chemo woo hoo!!!
 
NBarnes, good luck with your treatment, I also was triple positive and had a year of herceptin after chemo/rads and still take arimidex.  I know it seems like forever but you'll be fine and its so worth it, get more info at www.her2support.org
