  1. My infusion time was changed from an hour to half an hour last month. I was every two weeks and did not hear of a change. Last week CT results were not good so they are taking me off opdiva now, will find out options in October.
  2. I have NSCLC adenocarcinoma with matastases, I was diagnosed in Jan. 2017. In September 2017 I had cataract surgery on my right eye and in November on my left eye. All went well. I did not have the same chemo as your mother. I was also 68 at the time. I would suggest that your mother has time ahead for dealing with cataract. I think that I wanted the cataract surgery as I felt I had some control in that decision. I also did not want to go back onto a long waiting list. I definitely discussed cancer treatment with opthamologist and cataract surgery with onco. I wish you and your mother
  3. I am the cared for, I want to say thank you to all the caregivers. My husband and caregiver said the saddest and sweetest thing. “We still have quiet intimacy, a touch, a smile, a kiss.” Embrass those moments.
  4. Thank you all. First scan since starting nivolumab (Opdivo) is Sept. 17, cycle 8 is on Sept.18.
