Today we learned that the melanoma has spread to Don's liver and bones - this just since his last PET scan in December.
he is also getting his first ipi infusion today. Doc says it can be 25% effective! even against such an aggressive spread.
plans for radiation have been cancelled. PD-1 trial is closed. Our specialist has mentioned biochemotherapy, but is concerned because of Don's age - 72.
i feel we are getting good attention and care - but that there simply is no clear solution. Has anyone with liver and bone mets had good results with ipi? I am looking for a dose of hope. mm
