    My husband just had his 4 week post Yervoy brain MRI and he has at least 14 brain tumors. How can this be? the neurologist is talking end of life but then I reminded her, could it be pseudoprogression? Some tumors shrunk, while others ‘grew’ in mm or cm. I think my husband’s only hope is to get early access to Merck’s 3475 but the exclusions include active brain mets? How do I get past that rule? How in the world do people get thru this stress/agony, etc?

    Please see my Merck 3475 post. They were just approved for a compassionate care program on Monday March 10, . I posted the info. I hope this helps and am praying for you and your family.
