IPI/nivo users how long does it takes for the side effects to subside ? My mom had 3 infusions of ipi/nivo and after her third infusion she is been constantly having troubles vomiting, diarhea, extreme fatigue , nausea, GERD , rashes . She is on 30 mg prednisone and the nurse wants her to wean down. Its been 5 weeks and her fourth infusions was cancelled as they want her to feel better before giving fourth one. Her scans after the second infusion showed new lesions on the liver and the orginal liver lesions 4x the original size. She is feeling horrible with these symptoms and loosing her optimisim.
what has been your experience with the length of side effects ?? How long does these lasts ? I am concerned there isnt something brewing up and the ipi/nivo is working for her. She is down to mostly liquid diet.
thank you for listening.
