when to get mutation gene test

Postby natelaugh » Mon Oct 28, 2019 8:18 pm

Hi,

My dad will start his second line of regimen(folfox + avastin) on 11/05/19. He did his STRATA DNA test. I am concerned his gene will mutate later on.

How long should we get another gene test to see mutation?
When should he get another pet/ct scan?
How do we know if regimen is effective?

Thanks,
Nate.
