We can still make use if drugs that target VEGF and there’s always 5FU and oxiliplatin.

Indeed it's important to know our specific tumor DNA to understand value or responsiveness of targeted therapies. I'm weighing quality of life with side effects right now and need to know how effective FOLFOX/FOLFIRI are for others with same mutation.
I enjoy searching through research articles, but I'm not finding encouraging information.
To other members - if you don't know your current tumor DNA, please ask your oncologist? If you have same KRAS G12V (not wild type or other 12 or 13 codons), or know of someone with this same DNA mutation, please reply with your experience? It would be so helpful to me.
Thank you, so much.

I didn't realize that tumor mutation testing isn't protocol - wow. Pretty critical in treatment plans, I'd say.
Glad to hear you had a successful surgery. How is your recovery? Was it laporoscopic?
Though my surgery is scheduled, they wanted to shrink my tumor with chemo - it's on the large side 2+". It hasn't shrunk but they'll take out my entire left lobe.
I hope your recuperation continues to go well and you beat this fully!
