Is FOLFIRI + avastin, given as second line chemo for recurrent ca, done every 3 weeks or 2 weeks?
My mom had taken FOLFOX initially 2 yrs back. Now the cancer is back in her nodes along illiac vessels in pelvis.
Our onc said he is planning to do 6 cycles with 3 weeks interval but the onc we went for second opinion said he would give at 2 weeks interval for 4 months.
Has anybody taken FOLFIRI with avastin regimen at 3 weeks?
How do the oncs. decide?
Thanks for the inputs.
