I was diagnosed with Mesothelioma cancer at the start of this year and have just had my first Chemo treatment on Monday. Originally I was due to also have immunotherapy but had a call the day before I was scheduled to go in to say they had made a mistake and it would just be the chemo treatment. I was disappointed as I really wanted this treatment, can anyone tell me if this is available on the NHS in England and if I should press for it. Thank you
I believe it is available on the nhs. Hopefully Locovan will come along soon as she’s quite an expert on immunotherapy having been through it a few times.
Wonder why they changed your treatment ? My husband was diagnosed January 2022, 3 days ago he had his 2nd chemo cisplatin & carboplatin … 3 days after chemo he has been sick & gets a pain in his side, sleeps a lot then picks up after a few days. The doctors say this is the first go to treatment, after just 3rd we have a scan to see if it works ….
