Hi, can I return to immunotherapy? I now have hepatitis and others after only 4 cycles
I was diagnosed with stage 4 oesophageal cancer in February and have completed radio and 4 cycles of folfox6 chemo and nivolumab immunotherapies. I've developed pancreatitis, hepatitis, thyroiditis, pneumonitis and adrenalitis, apparently all likely a reaction to the Nivolumab.
My med oncologist suggests that after a few weeks on Prednisolone (50mg) I should be able to return to both therapies. I'm concerned that my body is likely to have the same reactions to the Nivolumab.
Does anyone have any experience or wisdom on this topic ?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
