I am waiting for confirmation from my doctor, but if I'm reading these PET scan results right, they mean NED!!! So, my first question is for those who have reached that point: how did you celebrate? One year from Stage 4 diagnosis to NED?!?!
And then: what kind of follow up should I be expecting after this. We did about nine months of Keytruda, and now I think we're DONE. What happens after this?
Stage 4 in April 2019, NED from April 2020, thanks to Keytruda and lots of prayer!
