Hi Paola,
I'm so sorry to hear about the unexpected during your surgery. I pray for you to get good response with chemo treatment so you can go back to the OR.

From my original tumor, I'm MSS with TMB 16 which my oncologist said I'm not qualified for a clinical trial that takes patients with TMB of 20 or more. I'm asking my oncologist to redo the test on the tumor from my last surgery to see if the TMB has changed ? The possible treatment plan for me would be Ketruda alone or Folfox + Ketruda. I am not ready for any treatment yet since I just got back from hospital this week due to some blockage in my colon. I'm still on full liquid diet.
I'm looking for information about the clinical trial that my oncologist was mentioning about. Google so far did not come up with anything close.

Pray for us to get stronger to fight this terrible disease.
Tina.

Dear Tina,

Thank you for your prayers.
I hope you have a good recovery and you get good results from your trial.

Hugs,

Paola
