Pam – forgot to mention – not sure if you had a complete lymph node dissection or not. If you do, you would be eligible for the ipilimumab trial as adjuvant therapy after surgery. But you need to sign up within 8-12 weeks after surgery. Mike would have done this trial but he didnt qualify due to the amount of cells in his sentinel node (too little), BUT the trial is blind so you will not know for sure if you get the drug unless you get the side effects. Ipi side effects seem to be way less than Interferon.
