I have been treated with Keytruda infusions every 3 weeks for a year. Past PET scan showed good results. Due for another scan next week🙏

Sending hope that this report is just as good, if not better, than the last. Please let us know what you learn.

That's a great feeling, isn't it? I have had the same results with Keytruda. Now I'm double-dose every six weeks and still no issues. Continued success and tell the world about it!!

So happy for you Yike. I'm hoping and praying my treatment is a success for Stage 4 NSCLC. Let me know how it goes.

Sending my love

Hang in there, Yike! ... At least for me, Keytruda has worked wonders ... This past Feb I completed a 2 two year regimen on Keytruda ... The difference between that initial PETscan two years ago and the one I had last month was totally difference between night and day ... From having stage IV NSCLC that had metastasized to only one little spot that, to quote the doc, "barely lit up" was nothing short of life altering ... They have given me a 5 day regimen of radiation therapy to "finish it off" ... By "they" I was referring to my oncology treatment team at Siteman here in St. Louis ... My next CT will be the beginning of June .. So here's hoping the desired result was achieved ... And sorry if I was a bit long winded.

I’ll send a prayer out right now for those scans and for continued stability for you! Not easy to be on treatment “forever,” but I’m so glad it’s working for you!

Well done.... Its still awful waiting for scans and results..... Prayers all is well
