Started Mercks anti-pd1 in January. Just had my first 12 week scans. The lymph node continues to shrink. I did have one tiny 3mm new spot show up on my right lung. They didn’t seem too concerned about that just yet. They will scan again in 4 weeks.
It sounds like trial is showing some good results. Congratulations on the award. You deserve it. You always sound optimistic and seem to take things in stride. I am starting Yervoy on Monday and am a little nervous due to my history with Lupus. I was on Z,off Z, on Z until they finally decided that I could try Yervoy. There were no studies done on Yervoy with autoimmune disease so this is a little scary. I have to be monitored with blood and urine tests weekly. I continue to progress with some nodes enlarged in my neck. I wish you continued success with the trial. I am going to the Choptank 5k Melanoma Run in early May along with my husband and some more family members. Good to hear you are doing well.
Mary Sue – best of luck with Ipi! I know some folks have issues… I didn’t have any at all. Got a little rash from it (mainly on my scalp!) and a week of ‘tummy’ issues… Glad to hear they are keeping a close eye on you! and giving you a chance to try it!
Shirley! hope you’re doing well!
