If a type of chemo doesn't work why not try another mix?
David's just had a consultation and not willing to proceed with surgery as the chemo doesn't seem to have had enough of an impact. Bloods are good. But from scans they aren't seeing enough of a reduction in the tumours. We've been referred back to the oncologist & told he's going o have another 6 blasts of the same chemo (5FU, irinotecan plus cetuximab.) But we've been told it's a slim chance.
After leaving I've been reading this forum & noticed a lot of people have oxaliplatin.
These are questions for the oncologist but just asking here too. Why if something hasn't shown a great result would you continue with the same? Would it be wise to ask for a new mix? Thanks all
