Looking looking for advice for my father-in-law who was diagnosed in February with stage 4, Non small-cell lung cancer-adenocarcinoma with malignant pleural effusion. Pdl1 40%, k-ras mutation. Mets to the thyroid gland, lymph nodes, and chest wall. We are at a crossroads and need to make some decisions.   Please see his post below and respond if you can. Thank You.

Just finished 4 rounds of Avastin/Carbo/Taxol Chemo Combo and Oncologist is planning for me to go on Maintenance schedule with only Avastin every 3 wks. 2nd opinion is recommending Avastin /Pemex combo every 3 wks. CT at mid point of 4 rounds showed some shrinkage on main tumor in lung and no significant changes on multiple cancer sites on outside of lung . PETSCAN is scheduled for later this week.

Anyone out there with a similar situation! Anyone that has had results on either choice. Not sure what the best approach would be. Any words of wisdom?? Appreciate any comments must make the decision soon.
