Difficult to answer.: recommended chemotherapy regimens change regularly depending on the results of studies. Your oncologist should keep on top of those studies and will be able to recommend the next approved therapy or any experimental trials which may be available. I would talk further with your oncologist before making any plans. Good luck.
