I’m either getting lazy at this blogging thing, or there just hasn’t been a lot for me to write about. We’ll be nice to the cancer patient and assume the latter.
Anyway, I’m back on the nivolumab as of Tuesday. One dose down and no adverse effects yet. (But hey, they build. Remember?) I’m on an every other week schedule unless side effects start making that too frequent, in which case dosing can be slowed down since the clinical trial is over.
I was supposed to restart in December, but snow forced me to cancel that appointment. Then work switched our insurance providers as of the new year, so I had to wait to get my new information, then wait for the hospital to confirm everything. Still a little nervous about that last part just because of ridiculously complex hospital database systems and massive amounts of money. And also that every time the hospital staff tried contacting the insurance provider, the provider’s servers were down. (The lovely hospital staff person I spoke to on Tuesday assured me this is totally normal during January when everyone has new insurance, and the insurance companies can’t handle the server traffic. Nice.)
Fingers crossed that if Betty was thinking of getting ornery, this will beat her back down.
