        So – I'm not sure why what I worte didn't show up!  I started Merck's pd1 Keytruda trial Jan 2013.  I had 3 month scans the week of Thanksgiving.  I continue to have nothing new or growing!  Just thought I'd share that info as some encouragement!

        I will continue to do the treatment every 3 weeks.  Jan will mark 2 years on this trial!  I have a few other updates here: http://melanomaandthecity.blogspot.com/2014/11/scan-results-in.html.

        Hope everyone has a safe and fabulous holiday season!

                                Erin, congrats on your awesome news. 

                                I'm curious about your continuing treatment. Was your trial originally a 2 year trial and now indef?  Were you always every 3 weeks or did it change to that. 

                                Congrats again. If I remember correctly you had intestine mets like me and we've had very similar responses. You're about 7 months ahead of me on the treatment.

                                        Thanks!   The trial paperwork is tricky. No real end date in mine.  I started at 3 weeks. My trial was for those that failed ipi and randomized to high dose or low dose.  I got the low.  After about 6 months they changed it to new folks all getting same dose but randomized to 2 weeks or 3.  I stayed @ 3 weeks!

                                        you have a great memory!!   Yes, last major surgery was October 2010 for intestine met.  They couldn't remove everything.  ( melanoma in lymph nodes near small intestine). 

                                        hope you're doing well!
