Kookieanne, you will know better what to choose after the genetic test results come back. Until then, I would read up on the alternatives so that I felt more equipped to make a decision when the time comes. If you are eligible for targeted therapy, that will probably be the best choice with the greatest chance of effectiveness and fewest side effects.

Echoing everything Anita said. Do you know what they were testing for in addition to EGFR, ALK and ROS1 mutations and PD-L1 expression?
