Well the oncologist has now stopped my pembrolizumab due to side effects. So I had been on it for about 1 year and had only a couple of side effects the first one in early April last year was bad fluid on the heart and lungs. That was sorted and immunotherapy commenced. Recently I have had immunotherapy colitis was and still on steroids to sort it out. Improving weekly. Just had a CT scan and that's what the decision was made on. There is no visible cancer in my lymph nodes the tumour has not shrunk or grown any more would appear the immunotherapy is managing it. My oncologist is very pleased as am I with the results. So to comnence the immunotherapy may aggravate the already colitis. So everything is looking good I am still here 1 year plus later no apparent cancer only the tumour in my right lung which appears to be inactive!!! PET scan in February to see how things are going. I remain positive and look forward to more years ahead. Immunotherapy is a wonderful alternative to chemo if you are able to have. The oncologist informed me that there is no difference to having 3 treatments to 2 years it is working miracles on lots if lung cancer patients. It continues to work in your body like an immunisation even after treatment has stopped.
So here's hoping he's right though I gave no doubt he is. I have put my faith and trust in him and he hasn't let me down yet.
Merry Christmas to you all and a Happy Healthy New Year.🥰🥰🥰
