Re: Liver metastasis and bile duct involvement

I was just told I need a bile duct stent placed due to blockage. I was told it may be from outside pressure from a tumor or a tumor in the bile duct. Has anyone experienced this? Did bile duct involvement complicate things? Any info would be appreciated. Hi. I experienced this. I had a stent placed...

Re: Need advice for next step

Thanks Lee. I am happy with the improvement on Keytruda as well. Would just feel better having those f*ckers nuked is all. Hoping that SIRT plus immuno might be a lethal combo for the cancer. I understand and hear your frustration. Can you get some opinion in your area or are you planning to go out...

Need advice for next step

Hi all. Just wanted some advice. Update: I have been on Keytruda 200mg every 3 weeks sine March. Since then scans have improved. Extrahepatic (supraclavicular, cardiophrenic, periportal) nodes have regressed. 2 main liver tumors remain, slightly smaller and less enhancing on MRI. No activity on PET....

Re: Stage 1 with no surgery...any thoughts?

Like what others have said. A very tough and personal decision. I can only say what I would do. I would get surgery since it would in theory nip the cancer in the butt. For good. Keep in mind this is from the perspective of someone who was stage 4 and has had multiple recurrences and surgeries. So 1...

Re: Ascites. Peritoneal mets confirmed.

Talked to the onc just now. He said ascites implies a more life-threatening outlook, so to control the symptoms ASAP, Keytruda is worth trying, considering it's potential and minor side effects, regardless of the patient's MS status. He is very willing to use Keytruda along with other drugs if the ...

Re: MEDI4736 CLINICAL TRIAL

Hi Rob. You and I have almost the same course. I also developed jaundice last December and had a biliary stent put in. I still have it. Currently on Keytruda as well and so far so good. Feeling better, gaining weight. Wishing you the best.

Re: Switching back to Pembro

Update: Had 3 infusions of Pembrolizumab (every 3 weeks). PET-CT still shows basically the same lesions with a very minimal decreases in their respective sizes. But all of them are now non-hypermetabolic on PET. I was hoping, maybe even expecting, a more dramatic change but all in all it is still g...

Re: Switching back to Pembro

Thanks. Onc hasn't mentioned Avastin yet. Did you mean combination with the Pembro? Is the data on it out? I'm not aware of any data on this at this time. Was just wondering if you were thinking of it as you were "hoping for a more dramatic change" under current treatment plan. Keytruda h...
