My latest scans show two dinky, stable liver spots, maybe even necrotic nothings. IHP did the trick. The few lung spots I have aren't changing either. There is a new paraspinal spot in my back muscles, only about 1cm. Yesterday, Sato said ipilimumab with sterotactic zapping could be "curative." Now, I haven't heard that word at all up to this point, and I'm sure he didn't mean "Yay, you're not stage IV anymore." However, I'm also sure that a giant brain like Sato would not drop "curative" lightly. The thinking is that while I'm still comparativley young (chuckle) and healthy, and I tolerated the big hammer blow that was IHP, then it's time for the big hammer blow that is Ipi.
Google Yervoy side effectrs and you get a lot of posts on the cutaneous forums here. Ipi-sh*ts seem to be a major concern, but as with any other side effects, anecdotes are all over the map.
I could duck into a trial at Sloan first, but I seem to be on this track of trying big things first and having them work so far. Has anyone been prescribed Entocort with Ipi? Cutaneous posters seem to favor it over Imodium.
