      I was offered Ipi just last wk by my onc. I dont have the details yet but Ithink I’ll be on the same schedukle, sot every 3 wks for 4 times, then scans and then go from there. I  have to do the gamet of scans first. I’m strongly leaning towards going with Ipi. It sounding like my best option at this point I need systemic treatment (again). I cant comment on the temador side effects. I had it mixed in with my BioChemo cocktail last yr so I dont kow what drugs were doing what. I do know 8 months later I go a brain met.. Sending you positive vibes for a compete response….kick butt!!…love, Sharon in Reno, Stage IV
