On Thursday I had round 22 of Merck's Anti-PD1 Immunotherapy drug. This has been a long road so far, but with great results. What some may refer to as the 'new normal'. As mentioned before, the appointments are pretty routine. I show up... I wait, I get blood work, I wait... I see the doctor, I wait... you get the point! :) but in the end, it's all worth it for a life saving drug, right?
Some have asked me before how I get the medicine. Sorry for the picture, but it shows where they put in an IV. Typically I get it in and they use it to draw blood. Then I have it in for the day while wait for treatment. It's a little uncomfortable having to have that in my arm all day, but totally appreciate having to only be stuck once! Especially since last time they drew blood from my hand I was bruised for a week+
