Hey there. I am new to the group and was wondering if anyone has taken part in the Katherine Trial or used Td-1 drugs like keytruda after chemo, surgery and radiation. If so please let me know your thoughts and any side effects you encountered. Thank you!

My MO just told me if I have a complete remission (PCR) based on my pathology report then I will do H & P for 12 more treatments. If there is any cancer left at surgery I will be on Kadcyla. He indicated the recurrence rate is much better on Kadcyla based on the Katherine trials. My surgery is Dec. 10th. I had an ultrasound last week which showed no cancer so it will be up to the pathology report to determine what’s next.

That sounds like what I went through. My pathlogy showed 96% of the cells were gone so they are having me do radiation the the td1 after. I pray your pathlogy comes back clear!
