My father has started a new chemo - oxyplatin . If cancer responds to this what is prognosis
Only 10 percent ?
well he's only had 3 rounds but I don't think it's working .
cea before chemo was 65
cea after 1 round -80 it jumped to
cea after 2 round -55
what at you think ?
The CEA alone really doesn't say much about whether or not the chemo is working.
Seriously here for a moment--you've asked many of us many questions about your father's condition and really most of those questions should have been directed to and answered by his own oncologist, but I have to be straight with you here--I personally don't think he's going to get much benefit from any chemo at this point and most likely he'll succumb to the cancer withing the next two years
So would chemo b pointless ?
is it better we try other treatment in Germany like TACE and denderic cell vaccination etc ?
I suppose chemo is main right ? He seems to tolerate it ok
