I started Chemo plus Tecentriq this past Monday. Curious if anyone else here has. I’m a Stage 4 TNBC with skin Mets. So far so good.

Hi Amscott,

I am starting Tecentriq and Abraxane in a couple of weeks. How has this treatment worked for you?

Thank you for sharing your experience.

I was scheduled to start this treatment a month ago, then had a collapsed lung and my doctors elected to postpone the tecentriq for a while to give my lungs time to heal, to hopefully reduce the risk of pneumonitis. I'm eager to hear others' experiences with this regimen, before I start in two weeks.

I confirmed My TNBC metastize to the lungs/mediastinal lymph noeds in January 2019. I started this treatment at the end of January and I have done well on the treatment so far. This treatment has held the cancer at bay. I have not progressed nor has it shrunk for the six months I have been on this immunotherapy. My doctor recently cut back on the Abraxane since I was having neuropathy. Overall, I have tolerated this treatment very well. I haven't been sick. I am tired the day of treatment and some neuropathy. I am looking at Vanderbelt as my next step for trials when or if this treatment no longer works. I hope this helps and that the treatment works well for all of you. I would love to connect with others with stage 4 TNBC.
