My mum stage 4 got Yervoy+Opdivo last year May, then remain on Opdivo.
It started to work around August and approached to CR this spring.
But now it got back again from CT scan. So it seems Opdivo does not work for us anymore.

Have you encountered this? Should we get back to Yervoy?
Suggestions and experience sharing are welcomed.
BIG THANK YOU!

Hope there is no reoccurrence. Is your mum BRAF positive? I had disease progression after Yervoy and Opdivo. Because I am BRAF positive the next step was BRAF target therapy, Tafinlar /Mekinist. I have been NED on this combo for two years! Good luck to you and your mom!

I just started braf drugs and I was curious how long you have to stay on those drugs?
