So this meant that my wife was back to the Marsden on a regular basis again, once every three weeks to have immunotherapy.
This proved to not be as harsh as the chemo had been – it works by effectively ‘boosting’ your own defence system, and didn’t have as many side effects. It also took less time to do (an hour or so, not 6 hours sitting in the chair), and there were not as many drugs to take in the days before and days after.
And it worked – after three sets of treatment there was a reduction in the tumours, and this progressed through out the year, until September when the last round before a break. It had been so successful that we planned to take a holiday in October.
