I need some ideas or opinions on how to pursue continued treatment. I had my gallbladder removed recently and it had several small tumors inside the gallbladder. A recent PET scan shows no other evidence of disease in my body. In November 2019 I had one lymph node removed in my groin and went on Optivo starting in January 2020. A PET scan in January showed disease in the Liver area and a lymph node was biopsied and shown negative for cancer - apparently it was not this lymph node that had cancer but the nearby gallbladder (not sure how they mistakes this) so I had melanoma in gallbladder for 5 months! My recent PET scan in May showed that the tumors in my gallbladder grew in size from January to May.
Question - do I stay on Optivo since the tumors grew? Add another immunotherapy like Yervoy or move to BRAF /MEK inhibitors since my tumors are BRAF v600e? Or clinical trial?
Has anybody Taken and experienced BRAF /MEK side effects - what are those like?
