My husband had to stop opdivo/yervoy after three treatments (June 2017 last treatment). Scans every three months showed decrease in tumor size. In April of this year his doctor let him skip to six months for his next scan. We received the results Monday (10/04) and his doctor's words were: "Your scans look great!" And no, he has not received any treatment since June 2017. He does not take any supplements, vitamins and is not on any special diet. He consumes meat--doesn't eat enough fruits or vegetables--and sugar is a food group in his opinion. Just saying all this because I do not understand how this disease treats people so differently. My heart aches for people who do not respond while doing everything they can to fight this beast.
And I know it can attack my husband at anytime if it so desires, but for now we are truly thankful. I hope this post can bring a little hope to someone.
Thanks to all who post here and for all the valuable information.
God Bless,
Jim's wife
