       Hi David,

      I’ve never received either one of those drugs but many on this board have.  I’m not sure how many people have taken them at the same time though.  Is this a trial?  As you probably know, Ipi is not yet approved by the FDA but many think it will be soon.  Could you share a little more info…where is the mets that upgraded you to Stage IV?  Many experience tumor growth with Ipi prior to showing a shrinkage response.

      Hopefully, you’ll get lots of helpful responses.  The new format of this Board was just this week so many of us are still getting used to it.

      Stay Strong
