      Not me personally, but I have family that have had seizures, just not from side effects from chemo, so then, I guess it's NO.

      How scary! My brother had CLL and I believe he had a seizure once as an allergic reaction to one of his meds. I had seizures as a child but they called then pediatric seizure and I did out grow them. To be honest I never remembered having them. The first time I was with my sister and she ran and got my parents. They would just tell me about them after the fact. Let us know how it goes. Hopefully they will find an easy fix!

      Keytruda is approved for prostate cancer as of May 2017 for solid tumor cancers with a specific marker called MSI-High. I hope this answers your question.

      Todd, I am on Pembroluzimab/Keytruda for past 2 yrs #31 infusion this week, I have a rare mutation that became castration resistant to all conventional PC treatment, Genomic Sequencing of pathology determined I was an experimental candidate for targeted checkpoint inhibitor blockade due to the # of mutations found..it's a very fine line for response for PC, and I was one of the fortunate ones that had the matching Genetics makeup.

      carm, I am responding to Microsatellite Stable MSS, not MSI-high, also POLE mutant V411L, high burden with noted PTEN, TP53, and ATM variants., Remarkable, durable response for 22 months.

    I guess since all men have one, it's to be expected to be a common type of cancer. But the danger is that it hides, lies there undetected for years until it's a difficult thing to evict from your body.
