anti-pdL1 trial

Well hubby is now on his 4th trial medication. Yervoy did not work.  After just 3 doses there was no shrinkage.  Got first dose of PDL-1 on Tuesday, I pray this is the miracle drug they keep saying it is.  He will get an infusion every 2 weeks. Please keep us in your prayers.  Getting weaker more every day. Just got approved for disability due to fatigue.  Can only work 3 5-hour days. Its hard to see a previously active, vibrant, hard-working man regress so fast. My family and I just let him rest and don't push him.

He has now been on this trial for exactly one year!!!! His scans have shown up to this point a 78% shrinkage of all tumors with no new evidence.  We pray everyday it still keeps working. No real side effects, fatigue, itching ,and some pain. But he has had those symptoms all along.

And for which type of cancer is your husband being treated for?  (I didn't see the beginning of his thread).  This sounds very promising.  What a miracle!

So happy to hear the PDL 1 therapy is working for him. Finally, a real cure.

God bless you.
