      I’ve been stage IV now for a year, but so far with only small, randomly located sub-q mets (seven total). Anyone out there with a history similar to mine? So long as the tumor burden remains low my onco and I agree that surgery is the best therapy. Disease progression to internal organs is obviously a concern, but so far there’s no sign of that. Anyone else on this slow track? Did you go through IL-2 anyway? PeterO.
