Hi all, so my SO has stage 4 melanoma and has been on Braftovi and Mektovi for a few months now. Let me just say this has been a harrowing experience and I send everyone going through this lots of love and high hopes. You all are warriors ♡
Unfortunately symptoms of my SOs cancer are showing back up (extreme nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, poor appetite) and we are thinking he may be resistant to mektovi and braftovi now. We have an MD appointment tomorrow with our melanoma specialist but I was wondering if anyone knew answers to my questions below...
-once someone is resistant to mektovi and braftovi does that mean they are resistant to all other forms of BRAF/MEK inhibitor drugs? Or could they be placed on other similar drug like Taflinar or Keytruda?
-is radiation ever used as a last resort to treat liver mets?
Thank you for any insight. Other thoughts and suggestions welcome. Especially anything that might be helpful to bring up to MD ♡
