Thanks again to all of you who continue to give me great advice and feedback. Nearly a year ago, my brother was diagnosed stage III. I spoke to both his surgeon and his primary care doctor. They told me (and him) that he had cancer imbedded in his pelvic wall that was non operable and even with chemo and radiation he was probable looking at 12-18 months left. After 4 months of radiation and 8 months of chemo, my brother told me that his ONC doctor told him that there is no sign of cancer. Can this be true? Why would we have been told what we were a year ago? Although I'm thrilled, how can I verify this? Any thoughts are always appreciated.
