Dealing with Cancer and PsA

I was doing great with my psoriatic arthritis.I was diagnosed with renal cell carcinoma and urethral cell carcinoma, had my right kidney removed and we are treating the left kidney/tumor with Opdivo. Opdivo simulates the immune system to help fight the cancer.
Needless to say my psa is going crazy
Is anyone in a similar situation, if so how are you dealing with it?

  1. Hi . I do not have experience with Opdivo and PsA, but I hope you get some input from the community. Have you talked with your rheumatologist about it? I am sure it isn't easy to get all your specialists on the same page. I hope your cancer treatment is successful and that you are able to get your PsA back under control. Thinking of you and sending lots of healing energy your way. - Lori (Team Member)
