    Please comment on your experience with Keytruda.

    Can posters comment on their experience thus far with Keytruda. We do not have the BRCA gene but are figuring out our options after a post-whipple recurrence and a rather active localized adenocarcinoma tumor.

    - Whipple in Nov 2018
    - NED through 2019
    - In Feb 2020, Noticed soft tissue in surgical bed (3 cm x 2.3 cm) with a negative biopsy
    - In Aug 2020, Noticed soft tissue in surgical bed (3.5 cm x 2.8 cm) with arterial narrowing with biopsy pending

    In terms of Chemo,
    - Pre-whipple, took 5 rounds of mfolfirinox with no appreciable effect on tumor size after the 3rd session.
    - Post-whipple, tried 1 round of Gemzar with severe reaction to the chemo regimen.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
