      Is there anyone who has serious heart disease and have taken this   Ipilimumab?  Termodar did no good.  I took something before Termodar and it caused a lot of chest pain.  Dr. don't know what to give me.  I can't get into a C. Trial.  Probably too old.   Male 78  Maybe my Melanoma 4 is not bad enough.  I have lump in front of ear, under skin 1" diameter.   One on lymph node near arm pit and spot in lung and spine.  All were growing some last ct scan.

      I will not change doctors. This is the 2nd one and cancer treatment seems to be a guessing game anyway.  What are some of the costs of this Ipil?  Conservatine me will not spend what we have chasing all around for a cure.    From Nebraska

          I wonder if you should look into OncoVex. Have you thought about that?

              Nebr,

              I have heart disease (bypass surgery 10 yrs ago) and am in treatment for Stage IV.  I will probably be on Ipi within a couple of months at the Angeles Clinic.  They have not mentioned that there would be any problem for me to take it because of heart issues. 

              Best wishes to you in your pursuit of an effective treatment.
