After progression while on IPI/Nivo, I'm getting ready for TIL harvesting. The drug combo was effective for my kidney and liver, but not my lungs, so my Oncologist is still hopeful because he said the liver is often tough to get a positive response. They are planning to try harvesting cells from two different locations at the same time, my liver and my scalp. I'm also getting radiation lined up for my lung mets.

I still feel great, just gotta get more cutting done now.

Good luck to you! The TIL treatment can be a little rough in places, but when it works, it really works!
