I don't have much to suggest regarding new options for stage IV (I've been an infrequent board visitor for the last year or so) but wanted to say that Jonathan Cebon is also my doctor and I honestly think he'd be suggesting the most likely/best treatments in Aus. I'm suprised he hasn't suggested more immune based treatment (since that's what he mainly researches) but Ipilimumab is immune-system related so that may be where he is planning to go if the DTIC doesn't do it.
Sorry not to have more to suggest – I'm sure other stage IVers will chime in – but wanted to say that after "shopping" around for doctors in Aus and in Melbourne (including the Sydney Melanoma Unit), I've found Jonathan Cebon to be the most dedicated and the most optimistic. I hope he can find a treatment that will work for you and work quickly
