After that I was put on Keytruda and I am about to hit my 2 year mark on the drug. I have been NED for almost the whole time on immunotherapy. I know it’s useless to think about it but if I had to do it all over again I probably would’ve preferred to get immuno instead right after my first surgery. It would’ve probably saved me from 1 major surgery and 28 rounds of chemo. But the data for immunotherapy wasnt there yet during that time so I dont think any onc would’ve recommended it as adjuvant with confidence.
Glad Keytruda has been working for you. I don't recall if you ever mentioned, but was Opdivo discussed by your oncologist as an equivalent alternative? Or Opdivo + Yurvoy as a dual therapy? I read somewhere that Opdivo + low dose Yurvoy is being considered as a first line treatment option.
