I keep waiting for the side effects to kick in here so I have something to report. But there just haven't been many. My stomach is maybe a little rumbly, and I might be tired. A very different experience with IPI this go-round . Last time I was in the acute care section at the hospital by now, unable to keep anything in my stomach, and in terrible cramping pain. Also my tumors were shrinking like crazy. I could feel them all melting away by Tuesday.
Maybe this time I will have a more normal reaction. People don't generally see the side effects until about three weeks into treatment or later. If I don't develop the side effects (colitis), I will get the medicine every three weeks for a total of 4 doses. That is the plan for now. I will for sure let you know if anything changes.
