Hi Streat. I was diagnosed Stage 3 advanced melanoma in April, 2020 after a nodular melanoma was removed from my shoulder. Lymph node removal/ testing confirmed the spread and a subsequent PET-scan revealed small tumors in the left lung. My oncologist started me on the Keytruda immunotherapy regimen. Tumors disappeared after 3-6 months and infusions continued for 6 more months. Two more PET-scans and 3 CT-scans later my oncologist declared me cancer-free and in complete remission (just yesterday).
The side effects of the treatment were very minimal for me. Itchy skin and bouts of Keytruda-induced colitis. Irritating but very manageable. It worked for me. I made a special point to eat extremely healthy meals and exercise for an hour daily
I wish you the best of luck with your treatment. There are lots of immunotherapy success stories out there.
