... help anyone, I am considering telling the doctor no tomorrow I have non small cell lung cancer. Have been fighting it for 4 years. Radiation was given first and then chemo. At one point all tumors appeared gone, but have returned and additional chemo has not worked well.
I have been on opdivo since November2015 and it was a lifesaver literally!! But now the tumor is growing again and will have to try something else. I have very little side effects except for a rash that has gotten really bad since I stopped the treatments. But I would definitely recommend this drug. It was the only thing that worked after radiation and chemo were not effective. Good luck to you and prayers to you.
I have been on Nivolumab for 4 months for renal cell cancer. I have experienced some periodic itching between infusions, occaisional fatigue . For the most part my life has been uninterrupted by side effects. I continue to run , travel and exercise. I have been pleasantly surprised by these treatments. I’ll be having a scan at the end of the month to determine if it has stopped progression of disease.
