  June will mark two years since my husband had to stop odivo/yervoy treatment because of side effects.  Latest scan shows stable nodule in left adrenal gland. From where he started this is great news. Dr. says he can wait six months now next scan. I was holding my breath for this report since he hasn't received treatment of any kind for almost two years.

CT scan also shows a small abdominal aortic aneurysm that they will keep an eye on,  

 Yes NED would be great but from so many stories I read here----we are blessed!

Thanks to all for your compassion and sound advice.

This is good news, six months to breathe between scans! My husband had to skip his last opdivo infusion due to pneumonitis. His oncologists said that this might be the end of immunotherapy for him.It is encouraging to read your post. Thank you.

 Yes, it's great to know that even though he didn't receive the last scheduled treatment and refused anything else, his scans are still showing treatment is continuing to work.  And six months seems so far away!

 Hoping for the best for your husband....

always hate it when after scans they tell me everything that's wrong with me besides cancer. But that is a good find for your husband and good to keep an eye on. My father had a AAA, he was treated successfully with the insertion of a stent by an interventional radiologist at Mount Sinai. 

Best wishes too you both.
