      I had two doses of Keytruda under a clinical trial for a 1.8 paratracheal node. That kicked the cancer. 6 weeks from first infusion it was .6 and another two was gone. Mild, tolerable side effects. Fatigue is always top of the list. These meds are having our bodes work hard!

      I thought of it as my magic dust! If he gets the itchies, he should ask about taking reg. Claritin. It works with many of the treatments. A mega ugly surgery was cancelled because of the results. Hugs!!
