    Procedure or Surgery (Steroid injection): MRI showed arthritis between L3 and L4 which could be the cause of leg pain. Said it would take several days for the steroids to start working. Still waiting. All kinds of new medication.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Immunotherapy): First dose of Yervoy. No side effects. Maybe some low grade fevers but I neglected to buy a thermometer for a while, so I don't really know.

    Procedure or Surgery (Power Port): I had a bad reaction to the tape - blisters, raw skin, swelling, hopefully not too much scarring. 1 week post surgery and starting to feel better.
