    Opdivo

    I have restage Lung cancer metastasized into bones. Last week I received my 41st dose of Opdivo. (I had already had 1round radiation & 2 rounds chemo for primary non small cell lung cancer). I wouldn't survive a 3rd round of Taxol based chemo so my Onc. ( who helped invent Opdivo) suggested Opdivo. I have yet to show any side effects that are negative. I have energy stamina etc. All scans since starting Opdivo have shown significant shrinking of restage cancer. I'm pleased with the results so far. Please remember that everybody's bodies are different so results vary with Opdivo treatment.

    Thank you, Stillalive18.  Opdivo is marketed as for lung cancer, so it if is working that is fantastic.  Some of the women here who have also had it for uterine cancer haven't posted for awhile (Ocalagal? - where are you?) and sadly, we lost AWK (Anne).  Of course, our Lou Ann has had Keytruda and has done well but has been struggling lately.

    I hope they find a immunotherapy treatment that really can work for all.
