Opdivo Infusion Scheduling

Postby Fluff Bottom » Mon Oct 28, 2019 12:26 pm

I will be starting Opdivo/Stivarga soon and I am trying to plan the best day for my infusion so I can still work. While on FOLFOX I had the infusion on Wednesday, felt ok on Thursday and Friday then had the weekend to recover.

Does anyone have experience with these drugs?

Thanks!

Hi,

I notice your signature and progression, did you get a DNA test of your tumor?
