Hi there, I am new to this, so please bare with me ! My basic history of lung cancer was in 2012 when I had a partial lobectomy. I cruised through until december 2017 and then was diagnosed with Lung cancer stage 4. I have been through rounds of chemo and for the last 7 months due to side effects have been on no treatment until I had a ct scan last week which showed the cancer had increased in size and I have now started on my first Immunotherapy drug [Atezolizumab] which will be ongoing. I am from SA and would dearly love to know if there is anybody in similar circumstances !!
Hi Katekat, Thank you for your reply. I had my first immunotherapy treatment last week and I felt really relaxed. It will be every 3 weeks and my oncologist said it has had some good results and it takes 6 to 9 weeks before it starts to take effect. Early days yet whether I will have side effects but he says I probably wont have any . How about yourself, how are you travelling ?
