    • Hey Carlos, My mom is an advanced stage lung cancer patient too.  After undergoing a lobectomy with follow up chemo and radiation, she had her 1st recurrence.  For this recurrence, lung cancer treatment had grown greatly and her treatment plan was 2 chemo's (alimta + carboplatin) and keytruda.  Like many, that cocktail of drugs took care of business.  My mom has had no evidence of active disease for awhile now.  The drugs do not come without their side effects and my mom had a tough go for the 1st 6 months, until she stopped chemo and just proceeded with Keytruda (which is what the original treatment plan called for).   I was definitely more nervous than my mom when it came to her first infusions and radiation.  I made sure to attend all of the first appointments and then went to as many others as I could (I live an hour away from my mom).  I'm happy that you found us.  There will be lots of questions and uncertainty along the way.  Unfortunately, that's the norm when it comes to dealing with lung cancer.  But you've found a great place to find up to date information and personal experiences.   I attempted to document most of what my mom dealt with in her first year of immunotherapy, here's the link to the discussion in case you want to read it: here. Take care, Steff
    • Curt I have been thinking about you..I know you are scared I am also scared and you are probably not getting on here trying not to think about all this until your surgery which I understand totally. If you need a sounding board I am here, I haven’t even got a diagnosis or seen my pulmonologist until feb 13 but yet I feel we are in the same boat so I am, just know I am listening my friend. Love and Light ❤️
    • That would have been the best Christmas present to hear those words Everything Looks Great ..so happy for you and it gives the rest of us hope too...
