My heart goes out to you, the statistics are a horrible read. My husband was diagnosed Feb 17 with advanced pca, with spread to the bones. Just a couple of weeks ago he had a bi-polar TURP and we are due a urology follow up on Wednesday. It is likely that he has Small Cell pca as he hasn't responded well to the standard treatments.
He had chemo, 6 cycles of docetaxel (small cell hadn't been identified at this point) and felt pretty crap. But, he's been around longer than the statistics median and although the last few weeks have been tough because of his symptoms, we have had a pretty good 22 months since diagnosis.
I haven't updated my conversation this week yet because I didn't like to tempt fate, silly superstition I know but I can't help it.
We've been out to get the Christmas tree today, which seemed an impossibility last week and he's eaten 4 times today.
Everyone's response to treatment is different but I know my husband is glad he's tried them all even if they only made a little difference to life expectancy.
I have also posted without any real question, just being able to put it here helps with the tangle of emotions and everyone who responds are so thoughtful and kind, they just "get it".
I hope the results from the PET show something positive. Thinking of you
