Cathy, I am sorry to hear of your husband's illness with this godawful disease. If you have been following the board, you have probably read my posts regarding my dad, who is 66. DX in Dec. of 99, he is very sick since April; bowel obstruction, liver infections, cancer recurrance in liver. However, he did have a 'good ride' as he says from Feb. 2000 until April 2001. He had a wonderful surgeon who we believe extended his life expectancy, he received 5fu and radiation and since then there has been no treatment. He also had other health problems, and has been very stubborn to any alternative treatment. Currently, he is home with Hospice care and has good and bad days. Is he a survivor?, so far. . keep plugging away to get your husband the best possible care. Unfortunately, as I have mentioned in previous posts, this is a very rare disease which means there is not much out there. Good luck to both you and your husband, and feel free to contact via e-mail.
