    Flu-like symptoms may occur after treatment. This includes fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, joint aches, cough, sore throat, stuffy or runny nose. Diarrhea may occur. You are at a greater risk of having infections due to low whit blood cell count. You may feel some general pain, trouble sleeping. Hope this helps. I start my herceptin on jan 30th.

    I would recommend navigatecancerfoundation.org for excellent answers to questions like this. The nurse I speak with has been an oncology nurse for 29 years and answers are usually back within a day. It is sponsored by LIVESTRONG, no charge to cancer patient. Let us know!
