Mike, I'm so sorry your wife is having such a difficult time. There is currently a trial using carboplatin with tecentriq. I don't know where you live but it is a trial available in several places across the USA. Contact Vanderbilt Breast Center in Nashville. They had 30 places available back in July and their research team should be able to tell you a place near to you that is also participating in the trial to see if she would qualify. tel: 615-322-2064 Ask for their clinic trial nurse. The carbo might be something your wife could do. With the PDL1 she definitely needs the immunotherapy. Prayers your wife is feeling better today. Sherry

I just finished up Carboplatin, along with Taxol, still on trial drug tecentrig for a year. Carboplatin with taxol had double SE. Extreme exhaustion, diarrhea, no apetite. It lasted about a week. Thank god only 4 of carbpatin, it was like getting a double whammy. It is now done and behind me. Some neuropathy but that subsided. Starting AC in 2 weeks for 4 doses then 4 weeks off for surgery. Good thing is my breast tumor has disapeared according to ultrasound. I'm triple neg stage 3

I have TNBC...Mets to bone/one adrenal gland and a couple nodes. Started Abraxane + Tecentriq in July (PDL1 pos)...last scan considered stable so plan was to continue. The first week of December my ONC office called to tell me my blood glucose was 540! Long story short I have been diagnosed with type2 diabetes believed to be at least partially due to immunotherapy (auto immune reaction)...I am having a very hard time with this...all chemo on hold...PET scan scheduled early January with the added stress of knowing the PET scan will be canceled if my glucose is too high!

Taking one day at a time!
