Keytruda, how long does take to notice a difference
It seems my cancerous lymph node shrank a little bit. Might be my imagination though . I’m getting a little impatient, and its only been a week. Anyone here have any experience with this drug or opdivo ?
My father was on keytruda for three years. His visible met was on his back, really huge (half a tennis ball) and we noticed it getting smaller almost immediately. In three months it was almost gone (just some minor suv activity detected). It also worked beautifully on his lung mets.
So, i am not surprised if you see results after a week, because it happened to us.
I wish you all the best in your fight and hope that you get the greatest of results too!!
I can’t thank you enough with the hope you have given me.
