My husband has advanced HCC. I am familiar with all you listed due to my own research but voted only for the ones MD's have brought up...hope that helps!
Thank you!! That is exactly what I wanted. We are having a very important meeting on Sunday with our corporate council members. I don't think they realize that information about advanced treatment options is not filtering down to the community oncologists. I find when patients/caregivers know about the latest drugs, it is usually because they did their own research. We need to fix this issue.
Dave's doctor hasn't given specific drug names, just "If the current treatment stops working, we have other options." He's taken Nexavar and Stivarga; Opdivo was mentioned because he can't take it (he had a bone marrow transplant in the past, so immunotherapy is off the table; we had a discussion with the doctor about it).
I had Nexavar and Opdivo. I voted for Opdivo because it worked and minimal side effects. Opdivo saved my life.
