      Hi Nancy

      our son had completed his 2nd Ipi treatment back in Nov 2008 his Mets started to grow i believe this was due to inflammation from Immune response from Ippi not disease progression. I am only passing this on as our Docs did not keep  treating, back then not every Doc realised this was  Ippi related.

      As far as Gamma do it if Buddy is up for it, it is his decision. The more stable you can get him the more time you have for treatment to show response.

      best wishes
