Thank you so much, Merry!

I am happy to report that my dad has been feeling great after his first treatment (keytruda, premextred, carboplatin) and his cough has subsided significantly. It may be the steroids helping the cough, but either way we are thrilled he has been doing well with it so far. Thank you everyone for your well wishes, advice, and support!

I think he is getting some rest but is still pretty tired. He is also staying active, walking, bike riding, and doing tasks around the house… we will recommend he call just to see if there is anything they recommend.

Yes he has, we are waiting on the results of these so he can see if he can get this type of treatment as well. My sister and I don’t know much about it, but just hope this can be an option for him.

Thank you for your reply, and so sorry to hear you have this too. Happy to know immunology is working better for you! We hope you stay well!

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.

Hi everyone, my sister and I found out a week ago that our dad has stage IV adenocarcinoma. We noticed that he is having a hard time sleeping and resting due to the cough. He is starting treatment next week and we are wondering if there is anything he can do or take right now that will help him sleep or cough less to be well rested before his treatment starts? Thank you! We hope you are all doing well!
