My dad had his appointment with his Doctor today to discuss the next steps with treatment as his cancer is in his liver. Apparently he can't do immunotherapy because a major side effect is inflammation. Since my dad is taking steroids for inflammation due to his radiation, he can't start the immunotherapy. My dad's steroids go until mid April.
Given that information, the doctor decided to put him back on chemo for 2 cycles, just to keep his cancer at bay because he doesn't want him going 6 weeks with no treatment. After the chemo, he will be doing a clinical trial of "olaparib and temozolomid". Has anyone heard of this or had experience, or has known someone that has done this? I always hate the sounds of clinical trials because they sound like it's the end of the road. Any insight would be appreciated.
