      I had a PET scan Friday and saw my oncologist today. Since the PET scan showed no cancer, she has stopped my immunotherapy. I will have a PET scan in October and see her after it. I began Keytruda immunotherapy in November 2015. and switched to Yervoy+Opdivo on April 1, 2016. My last Opdivo infusion was on May 27. I feel well and ran 10 miles Saturday morning.

            Wow Edwin, that is just amazing! So happy for you. I love reading your posts they are always straightforward, practical, informational and motivational all rolled into one. What you have overcome is amazing and running 10 miles for most of us (and I’ve never had advanced melanoma) is merely a dream 🙂

                Well done Edwin. I wish I could run half or a fifth as much as you do (I do cycle though but I think thats nothing compared to you!)
