Robert A. Posted May 10, 2020 Share Posted May 10, 2020 1st let me wish all the Mothers here a Happy Mothers Day. I have anther Keytruda question, my wife started her treatment of Keytruda and Carboplatin in November. I think we had our 1st scan done in January and it showed the Tumor shrinking. The Dr. the put her on Keytruda Pemetrexed Maintenance then we scanned again in April and had a telephone conference with the Dr. where she informed us the tumor grew, was 5 cm when diagnosed went to 4 cm after the 1st treatment with Keytruda and now is at 6 cm after the latest scan. The Dr. wants to start her on a stronger treatment of chemo with Docetaxel. My question is, is there a way to tell that it"s not a symptom of the Keytuda working making cells around the tumor making it look bigger. I now I should of asked the Dr. but didn't think of these questions at the time, but the more time I have to think these questions pop up. Anyone with similar reactions to Keytruda? Thanks Robert Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
