Starting Keytruda and Radiation Treatment

Recommended Posts

My lymph node in my neck came back positive for adenocarcinoma. Cells were 100% sensitive PD-L1 so they are starting me on Keytruda this week. The radiation oncologist recommended 30 rounds of radiation to the lymph node.

My last PET/CT shower NED in the area of the initial lesion which was treated with cisplatin/ pemetrexed and 35 rounds of radiation.

Wondering if anyone has gone through the keytruda radiation combo and please enlighten me what I may expect.

Reaching out to All

Keytruda and Radiation work very well together.  I had 10 courses of radiation on my lymph node (it had spread there) and

it's just about gone.  I'm having some more in the next two weeks to shrink one of my larger tumors.  

Good luck.  I think you'll be satisfied with the results.
