Libtayo (cemiplimab) treatment for SCC...any comments?

Posted by Sue @sepdvm, Dec 16, 2020

I am looking at Cimiplimab, an immunotherapy for metastatic SCC skin cancer and wondering if any others are undergoing this treatment, side effects, success, etc.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Head & Neck Cancer Support Group.

Hi Sue, I'm tagging @gaybinator is the hopes that she will return to share her husband's experience with Libtayo (cemiplimab).

@sepdvm, when will you start treatment?

I had my first infusion at Mayo on 1/8. Hopefully will get things set up to follow up with treatment at home in Ohio this week. No real side effects at this time but a fuzzy head like chemo can cause. Might be secondary to my exhaustion and stress though. My husband had a TURP the day before for a spot in his bladder. He has urothelial cell carcinoma and has had a partial bladder resection. Lots of reason to stress around our house.
