I was diagnosed with Squamous cell lung cancer on 2/26/2018 with a prognosis of 6 to 18 months to live. I had dropped from an athletic 165-170 lbs down to the 120's at that time. I told my family and the doctors that I didn't feel strong enough to handle treatment at that time. That decision was met some skepticism at the time, but 3 years and 30 pounds of healthy weight gain later, everyone including my Oncologist agrees that I made the right call. So I have stuck with the "process" as I believe God has guided me through, and have begun an immunotherapy plan that includes Keytruda (if brand names aren't allowed on this site I apologize. I give permission to block that part out). The first 4 rounds lasted 5-6 hours each, with 1 round every 3 weeks. I am scheduled for 8 additional treatments of Keytruda only which will last about 1 hour each, every 3 weeks. I will have my first full scan (mid thigh to base of skull) before my next treatment. One question I have is should I follow the extended treatment plan if I feel better at some point and if all signs of the tumor are gone. I have read extensively about the good and the bad regarding this treatment. One particular piece of information that is concerning is that these negative side effects can occur/reoccur at any time during treatments. Some of these side effects are life threatening and many are permanent. So at what point does risk outweigh reward? That's a decision I will make on my own, but if anyone has had to make this decision I would welcome your experiences, good and bad. Again, I will make my own decisions, aided by the influence God provides. Thanks for reading and any input you share. God bless ad keep the Faith.
