I just finished my rounds of Temodar. Then they did a CT Scan. Dr. said nothing was growing. I asked about a specific spot.(lymph node by
arm pit.. They called 2 days later and said my Melanoma has grown 30%. Thanks a lot for correct comparison. What is use of taking treatment
when you get this kind of results. I have 3-4 spots in me. (lymph node, lung, back, kidney,side of face) Now Dr. says he wants to wait for this Ipilimumab to be
approved by FDA. I have hearts disease (over 40 yrs.) so don't know what I can take. I wish I knew what would happen if I did nothing. The
lumps by the arm pit is about size of large 50 cent piece, and one by ear is same or alttle larger. I have changed Dr. once and will not change
again. I will not spend what estate I have running around the country letting these Doctors make guesses on what to use.
Has anyone used this Ipilimumab medicine? What are side effects? I don't have any arteries left in heart, only bypasses so I get Angina
very easily. I am 78 yr. old male so maybe there is nothing that can be done and my Dr. just won't tell me that. Any info. will be appreciated.
Thanks, Retired in Nebr.
