Good Morning! I have been getting chemo, immunotherapy and Keytruda. Had 8 treatments so far every 21 days. I did skip one full treatment was tired of being sick 8- 10 days and try to recover next 10. Only food I ate was when I took my pills like crackers. Wait 5 minutes and if they stayed down than would take pills. Just got very weak. Go back for next cocktail on the 14th. Next scan on November 4th to see if tumor stayed the same or growing. I have same cancer your dad does but was told by 4 different cancer Drs it is not curable but treatable to keep me comfortable.

@richcolleen I am in same situation as you, just had my 3rd infusion of Keytruda added to my 10th Alimta (Chemo) treatment. Trying to keep cancer from growing, and it has slowed progression, and I should find out if it’s all stopping growth in a few days. I too am now out of commission 7 days out of each 21-day cycle. Have you discussed with your oncologist what the next step would be when current treatments stop working?
