Great news

So I attended my oncologist to get my CT Scan results immunotherapy appears to be working so I get #4 treatment tomorrow. The lung tumour has shrunk to almost half the size lymph nodes also shrinking so if treatment continues to work I can carry on with it for the next 2 years. Thanks pembrolizumab. I am so so relieved and staying positive. I am aware my cancer can't be cured but as long as this drug can keep it under control and I can have more years with family and friends.

Hi Ollie congratulations sounds like your winning the battle you are a true warrior. They have so many new treatments out that are letting stage 3-4 to live longer. I had stage 3 in lympnodes I truly thought I was going to die. They wanted me to do radiation I turned it down because my body wasn't strong enough. I did six months chemo I am now a six year lung cancer survivor.I'll tell you what I tell everyone on HealthUnlocked lung cancer support. I helped get it UP and running..They all tell me it is my voice and the hope I give them. Don't give up keep fighting. My oncologist calls me his little miracle. If it happened to me it could happen to you. If you need to talk I'm here anytime.Love susiejo1948
