Cancer: Breast board


My sister has just had a recurrence of her breast cancer, it has metastasized to her lungs and spine. She has many small tumors in her lungs and a few spots on the spine. The liver, kidneys and brain are clear so far. They are starting her on Taxotere and Herceptin next week, and possibly Zometa as well-we are still waiting on the results of the protein test. They are doing weekly chemo this time-3 weeks on, 1 week off. I am wondering if anyone can tell me what to expect from this protocol and I would love to hear some of your stories, if anyone has been through anything similar. Four years ago she had one breast removed and had 4 positive lymph nodes. She was taking Tamoxifen until last week. I have searched on the internet, but haven't come across anything similar to her case. Thanks for your help! :)
