If anyone is considering immunotherapy such as Opdivo, I would talk to your oncologist early on in treatment.

We began at a late date. The opdivo was shrinking her tumors dramatically, but was too weak from all of the previous standard chemos that she couldn't continue.

I have a friend who is an executive at Bristol Meyers and they are using this drug for more and more types of cancer and he is seeing dramatic results.

Think about inquiring. Much fewer side effects than chemo.

Mother painfully struggling with neuropathy in hands from chemo, any suggestions?
