Max out on FOLFIRI?

Postby CLD » Tue Jul 16, 2019 4:26 pm

My husband recently completed his 27tx. Of these, 12 were FOLFOX, the rest (13) FOLFIRI + Avastin. (He also did 1 month of xeloda while getting radiation). Can anyone share how many FOLFIRI tx they received before it quit working and what was used as 3rd line. Most recent scan showed cancer in lungs is stable.Thank you in advance.
