In brief: Other approaches

Addition of bevacizumab to oxaliplatin, fluorouracil, and leucovorin improves survival for patients with previously treated metastatic colorectal cancer Even with improved response, if areas of debulking can be performed for large masses, this reduces inhibitory molecules which allows improved immune reactivity.
For peritoneal mets, hyperthermic perfusion with platinum drugs helps

I am very sorry to hear that you are managing with this challenging diagnosis.
I have limited knowledge of the now highly individualized treatment options for advanced crc, but want to provide a link that lists many of the current treatment strategies that you will discuss with your oncologist moving forward. You are likely learning all of the jargon, but please post any further queries that arise
