Immunotherapy - DonnainRI

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Skin Cancer - Melanoma. Posted on February 20, 2017 View this journey (12 Experiences)

Started Opdivo and Yervoy on the 16th of January. No real effects as of yet, but they gave me a huge list of possible side efects/toxicities and told me I need to call asap for even small changes in how I feel. I had no problem other than being a bit tired the next day but did not have the deep aches that others describe, no rash, no GI effects as yet. Hoping it stays that way. I will get a total of four double drug treatments given every three weeks, then will have a CT to see how I am doing. Most likely next step, depending on CT results, is to start Opdivo only once every two weeks.

Easy to Do: Agree
Minimal Side Effects: Agree
Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
