Abdominal pain, cold to the touch, taking Herceptin. Afraid of breast cancer recurrence

Out of 18 sessions of Herceptin , I have four to go. Plenty of side effects :-( but now have pains (infrequently) in most parts of my abdomen to just above the pubic bone. The front of my abdo is cold to the touch, yet the rest of my body is warm. I am of course afraid that the cancer has returned (right breast- mastectomy june 2011- chemo then herceptin 1 yr Persephone trial)

Hi, I think the body pain and numb to touch or cold to touch are the neuropathic symptoms related to your treatment. Generally recurrence of tumor will produce local nodules, jaundice, bony pain or cough. Take care.
