Suggest treatment for recurrent pancreatic adenocarcinoma
yes folfirinox is a suitable regime
Thanks for your query.
It is a difficult scenario. Surgery unlikely to help. Hence chemotherapy with folfirinox is the treatment of choice. It has the highest response rates.
If there is a good response, radiation can be considered.
Now the unfortunate part is that even though localized recurrence, it is not curable. We can however try controlling it as long as possible.
Hope this helps. I will be available for follow up.
difficult to predict
From my past experience I can say 1-2 years maybe.
However it is not possible to predict in an individual patient
there are 2 lymph nodes measuring 1.4 cm and 1 cm.
in my case life expectancy and progression free survival
disease burden low so it may be more
But still the average progression free survival with FOLFIRINOX is about 6-12 months and life expectancy 1-2 years. In any individual case very difficult to predict. Some patients may even survive 5 years but that is a small proportion.
