Seems that every 2 or 2 1/2 years  cancer returns.  I was originally diagnosed with cancer of the parotid gland (33 rad and 7 chemo).  2 years later it returned, primarily in my jaw (surgery, 30 rad and 7 more chemo.  Now, 2 1/2 years later it has returned but is located in my frontal lobe.  It's affected the 6th cranial nerve and caused vision and other right side of face problems.  Was put on steroids which did help with the vision problem, but I'll have to stop them now as I will be starting immunotherapy with Keytruda in a couple of weeks.  I'm wondering what other folks have experienced with this drug and would appreciate any thoughts you might have.  Thanks,  Mick
