      I hope you are doing well. I see this post is 5 months old. I was hoping for an update to hear how the Yervoy treatments went. Blessings.

    I had a similar experience. Mine came back after 20 years. I am now in treatment with YERVOY.

      Yervoy's the bomb! I hope it works as well for you as it has for me. I'm close to two years with no active cancer on my scans.

      Hi,
      I'm living proof it works I'm 4 1/2 years out since treatment and surgeries. You have to have faith in your Dermatologist, Surgeon, and Oncologist it you have a fighting chance. You have to stay positive. There are more people surviving Cancer now a days than in the past.

      Good Luck

      I'm going to start yervoy on Wednesday of this week. I'm right there with you. Just have hope that you can beat this and even if it turns out bad for you and/or me let's go down swinging.

      The goal of Yervoy is to extend life....not cure 100%. My husband has Stage IV. Had a Tumor in brain (removed surgically) in intestines (removed by surgery) and in lungs. Found April 2013. He did the yervoy treatments and finished them Aug 2013. Lung tomorrow showed shrinkage. More scans next week. It's a waiting game and the decision is the person who has the cancer. "No wrong decision". Not an enjoyable journey

    I had a melanoma tumor removed from the HEART RIGHT ATRIUM. It was the size of a Brussels sprout. The robotic heart surgery had no complications
