Hi everyone, my dads tumor in his lung progressed thats why his lungs filled with fluid and also the one in his abdomon progressed. He has tried, Oxplictan, Avistan and 5FU and that helped shrink and then keep it stable. Them he switched to Xeloda which did nothing because they grew on that. Anyone out there that had there tumors progress try another treatment? I was wondering why other chemo he could go on. Thanks everyone, Mindy

    Hi Mindy
    Other treatments are irinotecan (chemo) and erbitux, which I will be starting next week. Hope this helps.

    Best wishes
