Dramatic effects of Opdivo treatment

Dramatic effects of Opdivo treatment

Hi, I hope this photo doesn't upset anyone but I thought I'd post some pictures of my mums progress so far with the Opdivo treatment she has been getting. This is a picture of one of the fungating lesions she has on her chest wall, the effects so far have been nothing short of miraculous, one can only hope it's working wonders on the mets she has internally, fingers crossed.

The first photo was taken 04/02/2017 1 day after her first treatment and the second photo taken 23/02/2017 5 days after her second treatment.

Mum has only had 2 treatments so far is due to have her 3rd treatment on the 3rd of March.

Mum and I are over the moon seeing this, it brings us some hope again.

Love and best wishes to all

  • Annette!

    This is wonderful and I'm glad you had the presence of mind to start taking pictures for comparison. There's a bit of a science nerd inside of me and she loves seeing this type of evidence.

    I'm so very excited for your mom. Not many of us are given a visual to track our recovery by. It's just way cool. Please share again in March.

    Prayers for continued improvement.

    This is fantastic! When Opdivo works, it is a miracle. Best hopes for continued response.
