    Off to my 3rd treatment / infusion today. I get a 30 minute infusion of Opdivo and then a 30 minute infusion of Yervoy, with a little time in between. Hopefully it's helping my stage 3 kidney cancer. My oncologist said I look really good yesterday, better than I have since she began seeing me in March of this year......

    I should be back by noon, have a great day all!

    Those are some pretty powerful drugs. Here's hoping that you tolerate them well without any adverse reactions and they do what they need to do to let them work on this. Stay strong.

    You already know that infusion can be a chilly experience, so make sure you get a blanket! Hang in, man…

    Guitarmaggedon: Hope this works for you. My sister has spent the last few years fighting liver cancer and it's looking like technology has done its part, she appears fully recovered, hope you do too.

    tomquietwolf: "Personal stupid activity"....I am also afflicted with this syndrome. Unfortunately, there is no known treatment.
