Hi all hope you are well,

They might consider radiotherapy but it's close to my windpipe the node.

Hello Scooby, I can't imagine what a blow it must be to recur and I'm so sorry you are having to deal with this. With all the treatment advancements made in the past few years though, I'm thinking that two years down the road, the specialists know even more now than they did when you were previously treated. However they treat you, I sincerely hope it's the last time you have to face down this monster!!! Best wishes!


Thank you I hope so too was doing so well. 


Dang Scooby, sorry it came back positive for mel. Maybe they'll have you try Opdivo or Keytruda this time?

Sending hugs from across the pond.

Thanks Jen will see going Thursday for plan .


Sorry Scooby.  Terrible news but good to know you responded to ipi once and very likely could again and that you have anti-pd1 as an option also.  Any chance of getting ipi/nivo combo in the UK?

Hi Brian,

Hope you well, I am not sure about combo I think they give it to stage 4 who have not had any treatment. I am going on Thursday to see what plan is. My pet scan I had where my cancer was before starting ippi still was clear this is 2 nodes in chest so new . I had a car accident in December and my chest was bruised. Cannot say for defenatly but it all started after accident. Thanks for message have a lovely day.

Scooby ❤️

Scooby, that's rough news.  On the plus side, you have responded to immunotherapy in the past so perhaps you will again if you choose to go that route.  Best of luck to you tomorrow.  May you and your doctor come up with the winning plan!
