I have been on KEYTRUDA for a year and a half now and am happy to day as of today I have no evidence of disease! In the beginning I had extreme joint pain! but tylenol and oxy helped with that. Now a little sore sometimes but nothing like befire. I think your body adjusys. I wish you well my friend and pray the discomfort goes quickly!!

Iotec35, Good Morning, Keytruda Infusion number 6 coming up, and pet scan shows good results. I am starting to feel some fatigue and nausea. The nausea seems to be more noticeable in the morning, and after a drink and something to eat, it seems to subside. My concern is I think it's becoming more obvious more noticeable. I don't know if the Keytruda builds up in our system and this is a normal side affect? I'll ask Wednesday when I go in, but I was wondering if you are experiencing any side affects? I truly pray you're doing well, God Bless

My next treatment will be number 18, its way better than chemo and my results are great! it takes 3-4 treatments before you see results for some longer. I hope to hear more on your keytruda journey!
