Small cell lung cancer- stage 4
Hi. I am Joe, 61 y/o. I was dx with stage 4 nsclc a year ago and recently dx with prostate cancer also. Yeah me. I do immunotherapy every 21 days and for 4 – 5 days after treatment, I am tired and have little energy. I am a jogger and long distance hiker and the week after immunotherapy, I have learned to plan nothing. I get Keytruda and Alimta. It’s just part of my life and I’ve had to adjust. No big deal.
Giving yourself easy days and less stress helps wonders. Really there are no set in stone rules, expectations or guidelines. Sometimes I think we think we “have” to do something or other and we don’t. Most important, we need to take good care of our self and be kind to our self no matter what.
