I haven't posted for quite a while but have been looking at posts . Just thought update on hubby. He had originally treated for malignant melanoma but developed liver metastasis this year had 3 rounds of immunotherapy
After few up and downs with infections at beginning of this year had been doing really well becoming a Grandad has helped him to have a focus . Although he's always been positive about things
Had 3mth scans & results last month have shown that liver tumour has gone from 10 cm original size to no visible tumour , just what they think is scaring . We are absolutely over the moon as you can imagine . Not quite believing this is happening.
Still anxious before scans but hopefully after a few more will start to believe this is under control .
I hope everyone is doing the best they can , taking each day as it comes .
Sending all best wishes & hug to those who need one x
That's great news DAAD
I don't suppose you'll ever stop feeling nervous before scans but hopefully they'll keep giving you positive news!
Sending (((hugs))) back

So far I am NED for three and a half years after Ipi shrank my tumours. I do know that some of the first Ipi patients are 14 years NED.
All the best
Hi all thank you for replies . It certainly helps knowing others are on this road & doing well .
It's just amazing how your body can be doing this without having continued treatment .Still find hard to understand how it works . But extremely grateful that this treatment is available .
We are off on holiday soon ( loaded with , hats , sunscreen & plenty books )to sit in shade to watch the world go by x
Wishing everyone all the best x
