Chemotherapy and immunotherapy combined (biochemotherapy) - StrongSteph

Drug or Chemo Therapy Associated with Skin Cancer - Melanoma. Posted on September 22, 2012 View this journey (10 Experiences)

Biochemotherapy is extremely hard and completely dilapitated me. I lost all my hair, lost about 40 pounds, and could hardly walk for the majority of the treatment cycle. I still get sick at the thought of going to the hospital.

    I am curious, as a Stage IV melanoma patient myself, what Biochemotherapy did you do? So far I have been on Yervoy (ipilimumab) only and it is an immunotherapy. Thanks!
