Re: IPI question

Forums General Melanoma Community IPI question Re: IPI question


      My husband just finished three rounds of Ipi.  He also developed Anemia after he started the Ipi.  His Hemoglobin became dangerously low.  He has had two blood transfusions and just finshed 5 rounds of iron infusions.  DO you know what kind of anemia your loved one has?  i wonder if my husband developed autoimmune anemia because of the ipi revving up his immune system.  

      what other side effects did he have?  my husband has frequent fevers, rash, weakness, fatigue, pain and the anemia.  he also developed a pleural effusion.  we will find out in 2 weeks when he gets scanned.  i hope it worked.
