I got my PET/CT scan results after two months on axititib as a 3rd-line treatment: bone mets have decreased in size and soft tissue mets have resolved.

Praise God!

Side Effects:

  • Fatigue, but not too bad.
  • Hand and Foot syndrome: fingertips sore, had to give up playing lead guitar--will try playing slide guitar; bottom's of feet sore, mitigated by thick wool socks and shoes.
  • Tongue is sensitive and dry mouth: a great weight loss plan--I put on weight with Opdivo, now I'm losing it. :)
  • Stiff and sore joints

I have two large Mets to L- spine and T spine. Did the Opdivo ever slow or shrink your bone Mets? I'm currently on Opdivo only now my first scans showed they were stable and no growth. I'm wondering if I should use another med to battle my spinal Mets. I had kyphoplasty earlier this year. I'm having back pain again so I know I need to be proactive with my treatment. So happy for your good news that is amazing.

By itself, Opdivo didn't seem to have much impact on my L-spine and T-spine mets. But after radation treatment (while on Opdivo) they improved and now have completely resolved.

Thank you for the insight. my oncologist offered radiation for my back due to increased pain. I had radiation prior to being on Opdivo/yervoy and it wasn't very successful. My spinal Mets are large. However maybe radiation along with Opdivo I might have some success. 

I appreciate your sharing. I'm so happy your treatment has been so successful.
