LexieCat Posted November 20, 2020 Share Posted November 20, 2020 Sitting here in the chair for what I hope is my last dose of carboplatin, after which I will switch to maintenance on Alimta and Keytruda. Asked about the next scan, and was happy to learn I will be getting another scan and visit with oncologist before they switch me to maintenance therapy. NP says doses of Alimta and Keytruda will be the same; they will just eliminate the Carboplatin. I will be getting the Zometa (for bone met/s) every 90 days by infusion, starting today. She tells me the most dangerous potential side effect of Zometa to watch for is jaw necrosis, so I need to be alert for jaw/dental pain. She recommended I start back with my dental visits—these are just for cleanings and X-rays, because I have full-mouth dental implants. And I will get my scans and visit the week of 12/8, before my daughter heads back home—which I think will make us both feel better about her going back home.
