The onc I was assigned to is the lead for this immunotherapy clinical trial. It seems like the trial is the route they are wanting me to go. I’m not opposed to the trial at all, I just want to get the full picture of all my options.
To get the full picture I suggest reading the current up-to-date article on the subject:
Basically there isn’t a lot of data to guide decisions after hepametasectomy. irinotenic is not considered effective in the adjuvant setting. Oxaliplatin is a good option, but if you have neuropathy you’re no longer eligible. So that really only leaves 5FU/Xeloda. I think a lot of oncs would suggest that, and that’s probably what I would do assuming there is no major toxicity. Not sure what the trial is, do you have more info on it?
