I am on an immunotherapy regimen (Opdivo in combination with Yervoy) following surgery. The symptoms seem to be worse than during chemo/radiation pre-surgery. Any others experiencing the same thing? Or might there be a different explanation?

I had a reoccurrence 7 months after Radiation/chemo/surgery. I was started on Opdivo every 2 weeks for 22 months. It was a smaller dose more often.
I was just sleepy. It may be the Yervoy but it may be worth the discussion to lower the dose and get it more often. My treatment was stopped because of a pulmonary embolism, that was 4 years ago. No issues since. God Bless.
