If so, how did it go? How often did you do it and for how long?

Hi I am just starting Ipi or Yervoy treatments for stage 3A. Had one treatment last weds.

I'm scheduled for 4 treatments, 3 weeks apart then 1 treatment every 3 months. Took about 2 hours including blood tests etc, 90 min to actually put in med.

Have not had any side effects so far!!!! Took it easy day after treatment but no diarrhea or nausea so far.

Received the 10 mg/kg dose hope this helps

That's awful. Such a strange drug that some folks breeze through it and others are terribly affected. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
