Hello Ladies!

I am new to this group and thankful to have found you.Smile

I was DX in Dec, 2016 with multifocal TN IDC in right breast.  2.8 and 1.2cm, both grade 3 with LVI. BRCA-. Completed 6 months of Chemo (A/C and Taxol w/carbo).  Had BMX 6/19. 1/6 nodes.  4 months of xeloda completed, 2 months to go.

Because I was early stage and there was residual tumor after neoaduvant chemo, I qualify to be randomized for an immunotherapy clinical trial (Keytruda for one year)

Does anyone have experience with this drug?
