Dad's oncologist believes that given his decline while on Temodar we should try another option for our next round of chemo in a few weeks. She said that the choices are Lomustine, Carboplatin, and Irinotecin. Dad is also taking Avastin (started last week). Our full cocktail is posted to this blog.
If you had the option to 'pick', which would you push for? We don't have any genetic testing. Dad's tumor had a biopsy but no surgical resection. I've been trying to obtain his MGMT methylation status but it has been nearly impossible to request the test. Lots of back and forth with nothing.
I'm now beginning to research these three options but want your opinions as well.
Thanks as always..
