          Hi I never thought I'd be doing this...like the rest of you...it's damn scary. Diagnosed stage III, sentinel positive, 2nd surgery nodes were all negative (18). My oncologist suggests either Interferon -2 or a clinical trial -either Interferon or ipilimumab (Yervoy) which is now used for metatastic melanoma. Any input would be appreciated. Feeling very confused and alone right now. Thanks  Kathy...
