Hi KSM, im not sure what this would be but i guess if you are starting your immunotherapy they are maybe doing more test to be on the safe side as the chemo could have changed your blood count. They want it early so they can test it in time before you start the immunotherapy.  Hope all goes well with the immunotherapy, take care.

Hi KSM

I am due a neck dissection later this month (it’s my second one in two years) The oncologists did touch on immunotherapy during my appointment so please keep us updated as I personally could end up having that treatment.

All the best I wish you a speedy recovery 

Stay strong
