Almost two months after PCI my brother's health declined especially the last week.
Severe nausea and could not eat because of it.
He had aan ultrasound to the abdomen which was clear.
But today, he was having issues speaking, he could not get the words out, for about 5 minutes. After which he was fine.
I fear metastases...or hopefully side effects of the cranial irradiation.
Tough one, and I am not sure I have anything groundbreaking to contribute, but am also on a trial (involving radiotherapy), so I know the pain of making these decisions. For what it is worth I have generally taken the stance that I will always go the non-chemo route if I have the option. I know many get through it ok, but it is really hard on the general health and I’d prefer to try other options first. Personally, Keytruda has been good to me with very few side effects and a very good response so far, and many in my various immunotherapy groups have seen good results w Keytruda combined w targeted treatments. But I guess we are all shooting a bit in the dark, so it is largely just a matter of preference.
Hope you find what is right for you, Rikke
