Need detailed pathology with receptor status.

There are other options of chemotherapy and also combination of herceprin
with partuzumab with or without chemo.
Third option is palliative care only.
Any further treatment will depend on patient overall physical condition and
performance status.
If you like you can visit at POC on Friday with patient we can guide you
