Re: Interferon Alpha Treatment

Forums General Melanoma Community Interferon Alpha Treatment Re: Interferon Alpha Treatment



      What kind of side effects did you have with the Interferon? Did your blood count stay up during the treatment?

      Were you able to work or did you have to quit?  Did you have a scan in April, 2010 and what did it show.

      Where was your melanoma and did you have surgery first? I know this is a lot of questions but you know how it it.

      Did you do a 1 month long infusion every day before you started the Interferon Injections?
