the chemo with immunotherapy my husband had with his second bout of oral cancer was nothing like the first round. Not sure why it was so mild but it was. He then had proton therapy after both of those treatments.

Muddy I'd been hoping for an update on your situation. I also have an history at UCSF (and managing side effects from immunotherapy).

How's it going?

I got type 1 diabetes from the immunotherapy, switched to chemo which is going pretty well. It's Carboplatin/paraplatin and Paclitaxel/Taxol/Onxal. I feel great the day of, a little GI upset the next day, more the next day, day 3 after is the worst -I have trouble eating and my energy is low and I just get depressed. Then I feel better and better until I'm able to work a week from the infusion. That leaves 2 weeks of feeling pretty normal and leading an active life before the next round knocks me down again.
