GaryG Posted July 2, 2020 Share Posted July 2, 2020 I am glad I found this site. Sad to say it: Déjà Vu. In 2005 I lost my first wife of 30 years to colon cancer. We spend two and half years battling the beast day in and day out when we were given only 6 months. I am 74 year old male just diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma stage 3 B. Unfortunately my PD-L1 level is zero so Immunotherapy as only treatment is not an option. My cancer is quite large so radiation therapy is also not an option for now. The doctor wants to start me on carboplatin/keytruda/alimta. He mentioned that the PD-L1 level is not a true indicator of success/failure and that he saw many positive numbers not respond to immunotherapy while some negative number responded well to carboplatin/keytruda/alimta. My question is: Did anybody have any luck shrinking the cancer with that regimen and if not are there any other options. The EGFR test result is not ready yet so the we don't know if target therapy is an option. Thank you for your help. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
