Peritoneal disease concerns
I have two metastatic peritoneal tumours plus for good measure I'm BRAF. Since last January I have been on Cetuximab and Encorafenib which seemed to be working well but I now have a CEA of 130 and the tumours are gradually increasing. I asked to be referred to Prof Jamie Murphy and have just seen a copy of his response which says that I am not a suitable candidate for any of the treatments he specialises in. He writes that I have both peritoneal and retroperitoneal disease with possible disease around the anastomosis and that I have nodal disease both below and above the diaphragm. This has come as a disappointing shock and I'm not due to see my oncologist until 5th January. Does anyone have a similar condition and are having effective treatment? I realise that my condition is not curable but am hoping there is some kind of treatment that will prolong my survival. Thank you.
