How long can we have Opdivo injections?

Forums Mucosal Melanoma Community How long can we have Opdivo injections?

  • Post

      My mother, 79 years old, has vaginal mucosal melanoma.  She has liver metastasis since December 2017.  6 injections of Keytruda did not work.  4 of combos (Yervoy and Opdivo) worked.

      She has 14th of Opdivo (1st was in August 2018). She is very tired lately, and currently has blurred vision and hair loss.  Anyone have these problems? 

      How many injections of Opdivo can we have?

      I am not sure how she can bear with injections.  If she cannot have Opdivo, will there be other choices?
