Hi there - my husband was diagnosed stage 4 on Tuesday with several smalle tumors in his a liver. His primarily melanoma was on his scalp and successfully removed along with a lymph node which came up clean. He is starting immunotherapy next week.
They gave us a 30 page packet of Yervoy side effects so it's hard to determine which we should actually expect and plan for. I've read about joint pain on here so believe that can be a real issue. My husband is 27 and healthy aside from all this and being treated at UCSF.
Also I have the same questions about PD-L1 and MEK which is the clinical trial he'll get into if we don't see immediate results from the Vervoy. Any insight is much appreciated!
