Still working on financing extremely costly copay. Hope to start it first week in December. Stopped Keytruda and Alimta last week as they are no longer working.

I was on Carboplatin and Altima… was on the combo for 5 infustions… tumors were shrinking. then they kept me on only the Altima for 7 more infusions… the tumors were still shrinking… I just found out the chemo stopped working and the tumors are growing again and few more are appearing…however…I guess they are very small… I had my first infusion of immuno therapy of nivolumab… AKA: Optivo… a few weeks ago… hope it is going to work… even though I am not doing the same drugs… I thought I would add some insight into my therapies to maybe share drug info… hope your new therapy works well for you….
