Re: Starting treatment

      Thanks to Sharon and King for their messages and for Sharon's advice — much appreciated. I am not looking at other options at the moment regarding treatment as I've already found out I do not have the necessary mutation for  Mek inhibitors. I'm in the UK and we have limited trials. However I seem to find out more from people on this forum and that is why I asked my oncologist to find out Ipilimumab.
