Chemo for stage 4 patient who failed afolfox and afolfiri

Postby Mercy110 » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:48 am

Hi all.
My mum is a stage 4 rectal cancer patient that be th folfox and folfiri failed.

We had a private medical consultation and doctor suggested her continue using Irinotecan ( I hope I have correctly spelling this), with a new drug called Zaltrip, and oral med TS-1.

Anyone here in the forum has been using or had used these drugs? What are the side effects that we should be looking for? Are these drugs effective?

Thanks in advance.
Mum age 56, NRAS-mutate Q61R
2017-05: Surgery with stoma. T4N1M0. Stage3C. Xeloda No Radio. Increasing CEA. CT: Multiple lung nodules. Stage4.
2017-09: 85% FOLFOX + Avastin, stable CT
2018-03 to 05: Folfox Allergy, Folfiri (with Avastin since Oct)
2019: Increasing CEA. Wait and see. CEA:178
Now: Irinotecan+Zaltrip+TS-1



WISH ALL MIGHTY GOD HEALS MUM WITH HIS MIRACLE
