Re: Lentin/Biobran/MGN3

Just looking for non-toxic supplements that may boost immune function to (in theory) act synergistically with immunotherapy. Open to suggestions.

Lentin/Biobran/MGN3

Hi all. I have used the search function of the forum and have not come up with any results. Has anyone by any chance had any experience with these supplements which supposedly boost one’s immune system specifically NK cell function? As far as I can tell they all seem to be one and the same. Thanks.

Re: Colon resection now abcessed

Sorry to hear this. Had a somewhat similar experience with an abscess after liver resection. Treatment is to drain and give antibiotics. If it’s any consolation some people say the stimulation of one’s immune system caused by the infection can “theoretically” improve one’s odds of cure. Hope it goes...

Another article on duration of immunotherapy after good response http://cancergrace.org/cancer-101/2016/09/14/io-duration/ Hi Henry. First of all congrats on your results on Opdivo. I have been on Keytruda for a year and I am doing well save for the toll it is taking financially. Where I live the d...

Are you continuing with Keytruda for now?
Any discussion with your medical oncologist on that front.

Hi Henry. Yes as of now the plan is to continue with Keytruda up until 2 years though I might bargain with him if he’s ok with reducing the frequency.

3 years from diagnosis, 1 year on Keytruda

I don’t post often but I just wanted to share my experience so far. I joined this forum late 2014. At that time I was just diagnosed with St IV colon cancer with liver mets. Since then I have had 2 recurrences, 2 major surgeries with postop complications, 30+ rounds of chemo, 2 biliary stenting proc...

Re: Solitary Lung Met - Looking for Positive Experiences

I believe there are lots of stories here of good outcomes after treatment for solitary lung mets. That you are getting treatment for it is good. Hang in there.
