Finished yervoy Dec 9... Scan on December 20th showed no progression and doc said she wouldn't even be concerned about lung nodule as it was a shadow and the obvious prior knowledge of tumor. Felt it was very encouraging news. So had a nice Christmas break with kids and went into hospital Jan 6 to start HD IL-2. Did 11 bags... Couldn't get last one in Friday...couldn't get urine output.
Anyway, feeling a bit better but wow feel like I've been run over by train. 27lbs of fluid retention... Scary. My dad took pic on day 1 and last day...wow. Hardest thing is not being able to sleep well. If I could I think I'd feel 1000% better. Cold feet, get chills... General flu like feeling. Not looking forward to next week in terms if dealing with side effects but looking forward to getting on with it. I wish complete response rate was better for patients.... This drug is high price to pay.
Let's work for better treatments....for a cure!!!!
