Home Forums Melanoma Diagnosis: Stage IV Good News for PD1 approval: I think.. Reply To: Good News for PD1 approval: I think..


Hi James,

Thanks, I’m pretty stable, is the word. No new tumors, and minimal growth in one of the larger tumors, but Infante isn’t worried at this point – says they go up and down a little on these ADC drugs. The anemia is still there, but not serious enough to warrant an infusion, at least at this point – haven’t had one of those for 6 months.

I’m very happily off the Lyrica – didn’t like the side effects at all – blurry vision, dizzy walking, and some short term memory probs (NOT MY AGE!!!), among other things. Apparently I’m not the only one – very common probs – oversold drug?

Hope all is well with you, too. I would love to try the anti-PD1 if/when things don’t do so well.
