I saw my oncologist and she is almost positive that I'm allergic to Yervoy. I've had 2 treatments and 4 days after the second one my lips, tongue, and face swelled. After a trip to the ER, I've been on benedryl around the clock. I'm still having swelling episodes 2 weeks later. Opdivo only from here on out. Hopefully what I've had will shrink my lymph nodes.

On a positive note.......

My mouth is in much better shape after using coconut oil suggested by Gene_S. Thank you!

...my husband and I are going to a MLB game! First get away we've had in several years! We're excited. I'm not having a treatment until after we get back! Yay!!!
