Did they ever do a biopsy in the past to confirm what type of PC Greg has? I don't know about everyone else's experience, but my dad's oncologist would not even start chemo until the liver was biopsied and adeno PC was confirmed as the primary because that determined his course of treatment. I cannot believe his doctor would treat him not having confirmation of the kind of PC Greg has. Chemo that works for one type of PC does not work for the other.
