It is our next cycle of keytruda - and it is combined with the chemotherapy protocol we have been on for 8 cycles (cisplatin + velbe + DTIC)
After the first session, it caused serious fatigue, muscle pain and heavy feet
After the second session, muscle pain/ inflammations got worse and heavy feet became havy legs - problems with walking/ standing and it is started going up to hands, cannot hold thIngs properly
Doctor prescribed dexamethasone and off to hospital for scans and tests
I keep thinking to myself maybe it is the immune system doing its job? Even though it looks scary now
Does anyone have experience with that?
How did you manage? Did you discontinue the medicine or reduce dose?
