Keytruda experiences

I will be starting a two year course of Keytruda on 31 March to combat non small cell lung cancer ( which now resides in the aorta pulmonary lymph node. First diagnosed with stage 3A lung cancer in June 2013, life expectancy not good. However chemotherapy was such a success that by the following March the tumour had shrunk from 10 cm to less than 2 after removal of half a lung I was told I was cancer free. Unfortunately 6 months later this was proved not to be the case when CT scan revealed cancer in the other lung. So it was back on to chemo in March 2015 by July it was cleared but found in the lymph node. By September 2016 it had started to slowly increase in size it has been regularly monitored since then.

Is there anyone out there that has been or is currently receiving this treatment, like to know what to expect? Thank you.
