Not eligible for Immunotherapy. Now what?
I have stage 3/4 adenocarcinoma non small cell . I have tumors in upper and lower right lobes as well as several affected lymph nodes is the neck area. Diagnosed about a year ago. Went through 5 rounds of chemo and 30 radiation treatments. I was told early on that I’m not eligible for immunotherapy due to not having the markers (?) and a past history of Colitis. I just got my first 3 month post treatment scan. Not good news. One tumor in upper lobe shrank but tumor in lower lobe increased. All of the lymph nodes in neck area increased in size with notes in my portal saying probable metastasis. Obviously very discouraged at this point. Just numb. I don’t see oncologist until Friday so don’t know what will happen next. Knowing that I’m not eligible for immunotherapy my guess is more chemo. Has anyone else gone through “round two” of chemo because you couldn’t get immunotherapy? We’re other treatments offered to you?
