Immunotherapy

Hi,

I am just wondering if anyone has had immunotherapy? I am hopefully about to get into a clinical trial of immunotherapy with a bit of radiation. The doctors have explained everything to me, but I want to hear from real people who have had this treatment. I'm wanting to know about side effects if it's just like chemo or nothing like it.

Thanks for your help xx

Hi @JLM!

 

Welcome back, it's good to see you on the Community again! I do hope you have been well?

 

The best person to chat to about this is your doctors and the people running your trial, though of course someone here may have had experience with it. If you have any questions you're not comfortable asking of your doctors, remember that we have a team of health professionals available to you on 13 11 20.

 

Hope to see you around these parts more often! Smiley Happy

Re: Immunotherapy

I am having my second cycle of immunotherapy tomorrow and am self funding which is so expensive. Too early for any results

Hi RoseAdelaide,
I'm sorry to hear that you are self funding that must be a huge burden. I guess i am wondering how you are feeling?? Have you had many side effects yet?
