The day before my third infusion, I suffered from diarrhea. I became severely dehydrated and the diarrhea was uncontrollable. While at the clinic, i became confused and was transported to hospital and treated for altered mental state. Stayed four nights. This occurred a couple weeks later, again four nights.

My husband had all 4 doses, often taking the whole morning (2 hour drive each way each time was hard on him), and when finished we had high hopes, but it didn't work. Tumors have progressed rapidly. :(

I have metastatic Malignant Melanoma in both lungs. To date, the drug has stopped the growth of the tumors. I am now one year from dianosis and feeling fairly well, with the exception of lupus-like symptoms ... achy joints and fatigue being the dominant effects.

I had this drug in the last clinical trials before it was approved. I only had a few side effects like skin inflammation and tiredness. It did cause me to have low platelets. But, that is managed with Promacta. I would highly recommend this drug!!!!!!!
