  My husband  started this journey Feb. 2017.  After being diagnosed stage four and making it through three rounds of Opdivo/Yervoy, he had to stop treatment because of the side effects.  Doctor took a "wait and watch" approach.  Honestly the way my husband felt, looked and acted we didn't know if he would make it until Christmas 2017.  He continued with scans every three months and all showed gradually shrinking tumors.  Not only did he see Christmas 2017, he also saw the birth of our grandson in Jan. 2018. Latest scan last Friday (01/104/19) shows No Evidence of Disease.  We know this is still a battle (another scan planned in three months) but to say the least--We are blessed beyond belief.

 I (once again) want to say thanks for all the encouragement I get from this board (Bubbles, Melanoma Mike, Ed and countless others--God Bless You All. 

 May 2019 show good news for everyone!

It is amazing how well the immune system can react for some people on ipi/nivo combo. My immune system reacted great but with mild side effects so I had 5 combos and 52 nivo but have been NED for 18 months.

That is absolutely wonderful update!  so glad your husband literally turned the corner and the immune system kicked in.  It's a roller coaster for sure but love to hear this update.  Wishing many many more Christmases in the future for your husband.
