Thank you, Merry! We will have him as at his next appointment. He will likely do a combination of Keytruda and chemo (carboplatin). We are hoping he tolerates them well.

Has he had any biomarker testing completed? They can do this using a tissue sample or a simple blood draw. This helps to determine the specific type of adenocarcinoma and can lead to a better match between the cancer and specific treatment.

@rkschaef– Good morning. If your dad is not getting any sleep you might want to call his doctor prior to his appointment. Is he up and around?
