Hi @arnold,

 

How are you doing this week?

 

There are a lot of people here who have had immunotherapy and are likely considering it. Do you know what sort your oncologist has suggested?

 

The following are some resources that might be of interest:

Take care,

Re: Immunotherapy

I am undergoing a trial after they took out a large melanoma in my leg (stage111c I think). Fatigue, shallow breaths, stomach cramps have been my mainstay negatives. Just had 2nd bout a few days ago, much the same. They operate in another 3 weeks to take the major lymph node out. Think they leave the rest & continue treatment. 

Seems many are having immuno, but all different ways. I am tthe 2nd to have it 6 weeks prior to surgery to see if lymph nodes improve enough, they do not need to remove the lot. 

Met person during Tuesdays infusion who is having immuno for totally different reason, he has totally different reactions.
