      I'm getting ready to start PD1 on Monday.  Had biopsy and new scans taken yesterday (still haven't heard how much my scans have changed in the last 4 weeks…).  
       
      Curious to hear from folks that took Ipi and failed and then took pd1?  What type of results did you see?  I know I've read a number of different things…

          My mets grew on ipi and have been shrinking since I started PD1.  I'm into the every-3-months phase now. I wish you the best of responses.   Dan

                Dr. Gibney at Moffitt told me the other day that they are now limiting anti-PD-1 clinical trials to people who have already tried ipi. I don't know why, but I assume that anti-PD-1 works well after ipi, maybe even better than before ipi.

                      thanks guys!  just curious what folks experiences have been so far.  This will be my 3rd treatment I'm trying!  Ready to get started.  The trial nurse did say they are hoping this can be a 1-2 punch with ipi.  The other arms of the trial that I'm in combine ipi and pd1.  But since I've already had it I'll just do the pd1 arm of it.

                      I'll keep you posted.

                          FYI – found out the results of my scan today!! Since Dec 18th the tumor (lymph node) has shrunk! From 3.7 cm to 2.8 cm! and still nothing new! The best news is that they are still going to allow me in the pd1 clinical trial! First dose on Monday!
