And I know there’s at least one member who cleared multiple nodules with FOLFIRI. Also, 5-FU based chemo did well with your primary, so perhaps it has a better chance of working here? Wouldn’t it potentially be better to take that step first?

As you said, mop up and move on. Sounds like a great plan!
I did a clinical trial at mskcc which involved chemo radiation concurrent with a trial drug (m3814), then 6 cycles of FOLFOX.
It was a brutal year.
Hoping the best for you, MadMed.

I'm curious, do you know what they will be radiating? Are they going to target only some of the lung spots, or all of them?
Bpaint wrote:Got it. I read the article you linked and a bit more about radiation plus immunotherapy. It’s interesting and I really hope it works for you. I’m going to raise it with my husband’s oncologist at the next visit. I know he is running some clinical trials with opdivo and yervoy for MSS patients, but I don’t think he is also using radiation with them.
