Ontmark, lung cancer treatment has advanced in leaps and bounds in the past few years. I have a good friend with metastatic lung cancer who should not be alive, but his genetics were right for an immunotherapeutic drug called Tagrisso. He is feeling and looking 100% and this could go on indefinitely.
Immunotherapy is the way to go if your genetics are right for it.
Sounds like you are in good hands.
Remember COBRA is good for I think 18 months?

Fight the good fight my friend. I lost my wife to Non-small cell lung cancer last year. She was at stage IV when they caught it, so there wasn't much they could do but make her comfortable.

Well went Wednesday for infusion. They did blood work first. Then a visit with the Doctor.

He looked at the blood work results and listened to my lungs. I told him I have one more day on Levaquin and started the 30 Mg prednisone taper that day. He put infusion off for a week. I asked him why. He said he wanted lungs to clear up some more and blood work look good. So I will be back there this coming Wednesday.

This the Cancer Center I am going to. My doctor is MD. Sirott. He is one of the owners of the center also.

A big thanks for the prayers and sharing info of others with good results on Opdivo.

Putting off an infusion is pretty common. That is why they do the bloodwork first. It will not affect the overall outcome. The oncologist wants to be sure your body can handle the infusion.
