      Hello Everybody,

      I just had new PET/CT results showing hyper-increase in FDG but zero change in tumor sizes . I am on Zelboraf and we are not sure if we should still go forward with it or switch to Taf+Mek before it is too late. Does anyone has a similar experience with such results? And how did it go?

      P.S. we already tried opdivo and it did not work, and excluded up I for severe side effects. So we are only left wit Her keytruda, but we want to keep it as a very last resort.
