Anyone with stomach cancer had any luck with Keytruda/Opdivo. My husband was on Folfox his Tumor shranked by 50% after 3 months, because of neuropathy he was switched to Folfori it did not worked. The tumors grew back even larger with lots of side effects. The last try was Paclitaxel (Taxol) and Ramucimrumab still no success. His last hope will be with Keytruda/Opdivo. Very disappointed.

My daughter received all of those treatments as well.  She started the immunotherapy with Keytruda but was unable to get more than one treatment as she devedoped pneumonia before it could take affect.  So I do not experience to share on its success .  This was several years ago.  I know they have done more research on it and some are even doing immunotherapy and chemotherapy at the same time in the hope that the chemotherapy can hold the tumor burden steady while immunotherapy begins to work.  I know this can be a hard road to walk.
