Good work there.  You seem to have tried the lot,  which may be the way of the future forcancer treatment.  Keep going till you find one that works for you.

Interesting that the neck-met did not get eaten up by the Nivo.  Have you got pathology on that little monster?

Stay well, Fred

Saint--your post brings a lot of hope.  As you know, when we are first diagnosed--that's one of the most important things we can give.  Thank you for doing this!

Hi Everyone, pathology on my neck RCC show all removed (yah), but also showed opdivo was still working on the RCC trying to quell the beast. I was lucky, without being on Opdivo I would not of being in such a good place. I am 4 weeks post op doing my exercises to improve neck movement. I will be back to work in 2 weeks, back to playing golf  ( down to 12 handicap my lowest handicap ever) and weights at the start of August.
