Stage IV lung cancer, what treatments work for you?

@schmeeckle64– Good morning and Welcome to Connect. I am a Mentor for Mayo Connect and would like to join everyone in welcoming you. I have had lung cancer (Multifocal Adenocarcinoma of the lungs) since 1997 and my last one was 2 years ago, this fall. It is a NSCLC. I've had a lot of different treatments but have never had immunotherapy. I don't know if I'm eligible but I don't think so. I am so glad that you are responding to Keytruda. How are you feeling?

Hi Merry! Thank you for reaching out. I am feeling really really good. Will be on round 7 of Keytruda next week. So far I have had no side effects. The past couple weeks my mouth has been really dry so I have been trying different things to help with that. Go in for a scan in July and that is freaking me out a little, but prayers help calm me down. What types of treatments have you had?
