Hello Praveen,

My mother in law was also treated for HER2 Breast CA. She went through four cycles of Chemotherpy, followed by surgery and then another four cycles of chemotherapy. On a routine check up before her radiation treatment, Doctors suggested her to take Lepatinib (Tykerb 250 mg * 5 a day) in combination with Capacitabine (Xeloda 4 nos a day). They said, this is because of some skin nodules in and around the removed area. We have started the treatment with Xeloda, but yet to put her on Tykerb. Just thought of sharing this with you.

In case, if you have started your mom's treatment using Tykerb, your advise on that would be useful for us.
