      What side effects did he have? I know feeling fatigued is a side effect of anemia and  Ipi, but it is a s/e of cancer as well.  My husband finished the Ipi trial and is  week 16 now he continue's to feel very fatigued and very very achey all over.  I'm praying that the aches are from his body kicking mel's butt completely out of his body.  In his word "that must be one heck of a fight going on in there if that is what is causing my aches and pains….."  what indication led you to believe he was anemic? was it his bloodwork?  Hope all is going well after this minor set back for him.  By the way how many tx. of Ipi has he had?
