The thing with stats is they are based off a large group of people. Over a group there was a 7% improvement. But if you get down to just one person, your husband, it is really either a 100 or a 0. If oxi works on the tumors for him then he will have a much better than 7% improvement. On the flip side if it doesn’t work he will have a 0% improvement.
That is a really sound advise.
For me 5 FU then Capox then Avastin+ Iri then Regro didn't work.
Now I am on Opdivo. It seems to be giving some positive results. Med Oncologist had told me it works in maybe 40% of msi-h cases (which are themselves around 10-15% of crc cases . )
So chin up and keep on trying . You never know what will work..bast of luck.
I am MSI-H, mmrd.
