Last dose, Nivolumab (BMS anti-PD1, 936558)... DONE!

Feeling extremely tired this morning, with anti-PD1 aches in my ankles, knees, and toes and road rash on my tongue...but it is done. My scans of last week all remained clear, so we made our usual visit to Tampa. We learned a lot from Dr. Weber who had just returned from ASCO and had our usual small adventures. Will be posting more on all of that soon. But, for now....NEW dimensions in my melanoma world:

118 months - since diagnosed with melanoma
38 months - Stage IV
32 months -NED
30 months - BMS anti-PD1 trial (Nivolumab with peptide vaccines) at Moffit, in Tampa

More details to come. Happy weekend - c
