So sadly mom's new tumors do not have mutations and her Dr. has left the decision of what treatment to try next up to her. He would like her to do Taxol but the dreaded hair falling out seems to be pretty significant to my mom. The other options are Taxotere or Navelbine.
I'm struggling to find out what the 2nd line can or may offer her. Obviously the more aggressive seems like a good path but at what cost? How much can it help?
I imagine this is very difficult to ask but wondered if there are any studies about 2nd line treatments with progression to organs and bones that helps - and if so how does it help?
