Shrinking response in chemo

Hello all,

After 5/12 taxol/carbo/keytruda rounds, tumor has yet to start shrinking. When did you guys have it start shrinking? Thank you

    After I started keytruda and weekly taxol, about 2 months later I couldn’t feel my ~3cm tumor. It shrank to ~0.6cm by the time I had surgery. I remember reading somewhere that when it’s smaller than 1cm it’s hard to feel it.
