QUESTION - My dad was told today, after his first round of chemo (Gemzar), that it is in 'remission'. I have never heard that word used with PC and can only assume it is a good thing. I have been reading on this board since he was diagnosed and have done a lot of internet research but can't seem to find the info that I am looking for. Can anyone offer advice on what this means for my dad? The oncologist determined this from a blood test and said that a mri/ct scan were not necessary to confirm. Here are the facts...Dad turns 65 in 3 days (Happy Birthday Dad!), was diagnosed 2 months ago, inoperable, spread to lymph nodes (wrapped around arteries, I think), tumor is 3.5 x 5 cm (this is the best I can describe). Any thoughts? Thank you.
