Re: 33 years old, mucus, blood and nerves!

Good luck with tests. I hope your symptoms improve.

It is much more likely you have colitis or crohns than cancer so stay positive and healthy

How accurate is foundation 1 / MSI-H testing?

Are there stats on the accuracy of these tests?

How important is the quality if tissue sample?

Could incorrect sampling occur ?

It got me thinking there must be some error and therefore some value in late stagd immunotherapy in MSS patients?

Stivarga - can it be taken in non tablet form?

Hey all,

Just wondering if any experience as to whether Stivarga can be taken by infusion or injection or must it be taken orally?
All the best

Re: Still at the hospital :(

I hope everything works out positively.

From a first hand perspective the symptoms are similar to a sbo.

Sbos can be managed.

Take care.

Re: Emergency HIPEC, possible?

Does he have extensive peri mets?

Venting g-tube and Tpn could provide symptom resolution and perhaps offer some time for chemo if desired.

Good luck in your fight

Re: Regorafenib + Nivolumab - Immunotherapy might work in MSS CRC

If there is 25% success rate from this combo that is huge. It might not sound great on the face of it by Opdivo mono-therapy had less than 5% efficacy in MSS patients. This gives patients a big boost
