    I posted last week regarding the rash I developed either from IPI or antibiotics.  The 2nd treatment was scheduled for 9/29.  Doc decided not to give me IPI due to the rash but did give me the Temador.  My platelets are dropping so I have to have blood checked twice next week and we will go from there.  Rash is getting somewhat better so that is a relief.  Not feeling so hot today after taking two nights of the Temador.  I am on a total of 350mg.   Next treatment scheduled for 10/20 with tests this time.

      The rash could be an immune breakthrough event and a sign your immune system is responding. Does your doctor do immune assays with some of your white blood cells? While on Ipi my platelets dropped and were low for the better part of a year. Then they slowly crept up and now they are normal. Hoping you can get back on Ipi soon.

       God Bless,
