Originally 2C in 2019 but moved on to 4 in Feb of 2020.
Well, I had 13 mets in my liver, 3 in my lungs, and one in my brain in February 2020. After 3 doses of the combo, I had high liver numbers 713/565 and went to Cellcept and Prednisone. The doctor looking after me refused to let me go on the single dose of Opdivo because of the liver numbers, so I changed hospitals and started on Opdivo in December 2020. No side effects that I am aware of and, best of all, clear scans.
Thank you to everyone who is so supportive on this forum.
Those are fantastic news. I am very happy for you. Getting a complete response to immunotherapy lasting already approx 3 years is amazing. From what I understand after so many months with clear scans,according to statistics, you have there moved from NED to the “cured” category !!!! Love Christian
