      My Oncologist called me this evening and said I’m “responding beautifully” to the immunotherapy. All tumors (I have many) have decreased in size. There’s still a lot of work to be done but at least I know I’m on the right track. Of course I am hopeful and waiting patiently for the words complete response, but for now I’ll keep doing what I’m doing and continue with the monthly Nivo infusions.

          Congratulations. That is wonderful news. I found the single dose much easier to tolerate.
