    What do you dread the most about your doctors office visits?

    I think it's getting stuck for blood draws with me. I never will get used to that. Waiting for results is a tough one too.

      Now that I started on Keytruda, which will require not only the pre-infusion blood draws each time, but for me now is the dread that after every 3-4 infusions I will have repeat CT/MRI scans to then meet with my oncologist for the results. Especially after this first couple of times to learn if the drug has had any impact in.stopping the growths, shrinking the growths or the fear on learning that nothing has changed and/or the tumors have grown and there are new tumors, thus the drug is not working. .Hope others here on Keytruda or another immuno-therapy drug have had positive experiences to give me some hope. Keep the faith

      God bless you PapaBill. That's horrible for the stress level. For my mind set, I had it quick and easy. No treatment 100% death in less than 2 years. Have treatment-70% chance of a quicker death.- in 6 months or less. I'm alive, but it's basically over with.
