Alice had been receiving adjuvant chemotherapy for metastatic clear cell ovarian cancer. After restaging, her local doctor recommended starting treatment with Nivolumab and Ipilimumab. Alice and Shawn wanted to confirm if this was the best treatment or if there was an alternative to consider.
Through her husband Shawn’s insurance, they were able to connect with a top 2nd.MD specialist. The specialist reviewed Alice’s medical files and concurred with her local doctor that the Nivolumab and Ipilimumab would be the best treatment for her. The 2nd.MD specialist did suggest that she discuss with her local doctor whether she should only begin this treatment when her liver function tests are trending down or remain stable.
Both Shawn and Alice expressed that the 2nd.MD service provided to them was in their words “exceptional” and very helpful. When our 2nd.MD nurse followed up with them, Shawn told her that Alice’s drainage was better, she was able to start her medication, and was doing much better in general as well.
