Stage IV lung cancer, what treatments work for you?

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?

@schmeeckle64– Good morning. I know, I know, and you have tons of company. The thing is that these aren't just a routine test, like a yearly blood work test, but a test that literally can tell us if we are going to live for another 3 or 6 or 12 months or die.:

My next CT scan is in July too and I am a basket case about 2 weeks out. Sometimes I have any easier time with good feelings and others not so much. I try and stay busy with mind occupying activities. But they don't work a lot of the time.

What have you found to keep you busy? Do you work?
