      Thank you to everyone you replied, Its nice to have found this forum as I have felt very isolated for the past 4 plus years with this diesease.

      I just need to know that I have a plan and some options you you have given me…doctors sometime don't tell you too much.

      Hopefully the DTIC will help some and or the Ippiliumabab if I start that too.

      I don't know what other chemo drugs they can use here I was just unber the impression that DTIC was it… so thoses other ones may also be options.

      IL-2 looks promising I have not heard of it from doctos here and wonder if its something done in Aust?

      Thanks Liz
