Responding to treatment

I recently had scans to see if my treatment opdivo/yervoy is working. Prior to treatment I had nodules in both lungs lesion in groin liver and two large lesions on T spine and L spine. My scan showed my lungs were all clear and my groin was clear of metastatic disease. Lesions remain in my liver however they are smaller and the lesions on my spine show no change or growth. Thank you all for all your thoughts and prayers.

    Yes!!!!

    I am so happy for you!! Praise the Lord. So do you now move to Opdivo every other week?

    Treatment

    Mark from what I understand I will continue on Opdivo every three weeks. I had a treatment on Monday of just the Opdivo. I have been feeling pretty rough. I had scans last week I was given IV and oral contrast. Also injected with nuclear medicine for bone scan. I wonder if my body is just reacting to all the junk it's been injected with.

    I hope that is the case. It is rough to get all of those things injected in your body - hopefully you start feeling better soon. I just got my final combo infusion. Scans end of August.

    Great news

    You are an inspriation.  My husband is getting his second treatment of opdivo/yervoy on Monday.  We won't have a scan for another month or two.  Hoping it works as good as you.
