    Have any of you been on Yervoy? I am doing some "self diagnosis" research online and see that many have had good results

    I plan to talk to my doctors the next time about "what if" this current drug doesn't do better.

      I did the yervoy treatments.. it went great! no side effects. They think it is helping with the marks on my leg from stage 4B melanoma.. I also did the IL-2 treatment.. did not like it was way to harsh... good luck with whatever treatment you decide to do!

      Yervoy has kept me with clean scans for the last two years - Stage IV melanoma. I'm with you, always wanting to know what treatments are waiting in the wings. Do you have a notebook dedicated to questions you want to ask your oncologist on the next visit?

      My husband has completed 2 of the 4 treatments of Yervoy, so far there have been no side effects.

      Thanks for the feedback everyone, @melanomamama, not a notebook perse but I just scribble down a few things the night before an apt. I can't remember otherwise. I plan on bringing this treatment up.
