Wishing, along with you, for positive results from the new medication.
Good to hear that it was well tolerated.
I'm sorry there was not much info to offer here - you are on the leading edge of the science.

Thanks Jack for you reply. First treatment went pretty easy yesterday. Much easier than chemotherapy. We have been counseled to have 3 sessions, 1 every 3 weeks an then repeat the PET or CT scan to check on progress in halting the spread or resolving the cancer. So now we wait and pray.
We found out this week that the Chemo didn't last for my husband more than a couple months. PET scan shows it has now spread to lymphs outside the pelvis. With the chronic renal failure as a result of the Cisplatin the only option, which the doctors don't agree on, is to try the Immune therapy.
Conflicting impressions from the oncologist; so I'd love to hear how others with Stage IV Urothelial Bladder cancer that failed chemotherapy have done with the Immune therapy Keytruda. The only option is to do nothing at this point and get his affairs in order. Pretty sobering visits this week.
