I have I agree with Pat - talk with an oncologist and discuss all options. You should seek out a nutritionist as well. It is your choice what treatments you decide to do, however, there are many people on this board who have had successes with radiation and chemo. My husband has stage IV was diagnosed August 2010. He has been on chemo pretty much ever since but he has a very good quality of life and he's going on year 3 so never give up hope.

I Am sorry the doctor gave him a time limit. Doctors really should not do that. I know my husband asked the question 'what are the statistics'. The doctor told him. The doctor never gave him a limit. Everyone is so different. Some pass quickly - others live for many years. It is Gods will - not the doctors.

I would also consider other hospitals - if this is an option. If you both no longer work - it might be nice to travel to a hospital who has much experience with PC such as Hopkins, MD Anderson, NY Presbyterian , Jefferson in Nj. Hugs and prayers. .
