Diagnosed February 2020, stage 4. Melanoma in cervical and axillary lymph nodes on left side. No primary, found through lymph node removal and biopsy.
Began ipi/nivo March 2020 for 4 cycles.
After initial response to ipi/nivo, disease progression pushed me to Braftovi/Mektovi in September 2020, still monthly nivo infusions as well.
Scans in November 2020 showed marked reduction in size and amount of disease.
Scans in February 2021 showed continued shrinking, though two suspicious spots increased in size slightly.
