The benefits of chemo/radiation for inoperable pc are hardly more than a placebo affect. Given their poor results, I have to agree with t.r. People should try whatever gives them hope. Doing something, even if that something has no quantitative measurable medical benefit is better than nothing. Perhaps even better than Gemzar, radiation, and all the other chemos put together. One hundred years from now doctors will look back and view Gemzar, 5FU and radiation as little better than bleeding, arsenic and leeches. Let's all acknowledge that little is known about how to deal with inoperable pc and support whatever people wish to do that makes them feel empowered. The feeling of control and empowerment probably helps them fight pc. You chose your way. Let others make informed choices to treat it their way.
