Re: Any good chemos I could try?


Sometimes it's good to go back to the beginning with something that worked then while you are waiting for something new. Perhaps a relook at the Abraxane or taxotere/carboplatin with Herceptin and Perjeta. Adding an AI back in the mix too. Perhaps Fermara or Aromasin. Or Faslodex. It may not be the magic bullet but might push back the beast until something else comes along. What about a PARP inhibitor?

Always thinking and will continue to think for you.
Kind regards
