      I am new to the forum and wondering what experiences people have had with the two drugs I listed. I had immunotherapy with Opdualag for 4mos. The tumor in my left groin almost doubled in size to much larger than a tennis ball. I have developed issues now with my femur, liver, lungs, and even neck. Next Friday if insurance is in order I get on the new treatment. I have spoken to one lady (nursing prof) who has had great success with this combo. All related comments are welcome. I am a 66yr old 3 time a week pickleball player until yesterday. I am scheduled to meet with a bone oncologist about my femur situation before being allowed to hit the courts for my exercise.

      Thank you,

      P.S. 2nd brain scan on Monday.
