My mum was also diagnosed with stage 3b in Feb 2020 and she was on durvalumab. She stopped durvalumab after 8 rounds in Jan 2021 and since every check up scan she's been NED.  She had another follow up scan last week and she gets the results on Tuesday. I pray to G*d she's still NED. 

Mum had a lot of side effects when on durvalumab, not as bad as chemo but she had persistent pneumonitis and shingles plus tiredness. However I say no pain no gain. Immunotherapy has been a game changer in cancer treatment. It's great that your mum is eligible for it as it can have incredible results.
