Hi Family, hope yer all doing good & maintaining yer treatments with tolerable side effects cuz God only knows when their bad their freaking bad!
But anyways, my last infusion was canceled due to extremely low ACTH at 1.0 and im gathering it should be a lot higher for us humans like in the 40's 60's..(we all are unique) so, now im learning this has everything to do with adrenal glands/cortisol secretions & a whole slue of componants related. Explains my week & a half of no eating, (no appetite) weekness fatigue (extreme) and so forth. So, iv been prescribed Hydrocortisone (steroid) so, lets see what happens, first my Thyroid now this, its all good. I eas also prescribed my very own Megace! Wich is a god send, those of you who have followed my posts lately know why its god to me haha...
So Ipi/nivo #2 is set for June 15th. I have a MRI (head) this coming Monday 6/11 wich some pf you i cant stand scans (except CT scans, there a piece of cake) i have claustrophobia and take plenty of Adivans haha...well folks, have a good weekend and youll hear from me soon like after scan ya...Mike

Hi Mike, I am happy to hear you are doing better. My husband had his second infusion of Opdivo Thursday and is feeling good. I will be sending good vibes and prayers your way Monday. Keep us posted!

Rock on Big Mike! Hoping all the labs get back in range and they get some more of that healing juice into you this week! Hopefully the MRI went smoothly and they gave you a little something for the claustrophobia! You keep warrioring on brother. #mikestrong!
