Hi Kathie -

This is Betsy from the colorectal message board - Stage IV colorectal diagnosed June 2005 - doing well. I am so sorry for the troubles you and your boyfriend are going through. And I can't tell you much about penile cancer.

But, Kathie, I can tell you that I thought Stage IV colorectal (there is no Stage V) was an automatic death sentence, but I have been no evidence of disease (NED - you will learn to love that term) since August 26, 2005 - after surgery and JUST 2 chemo treatments- though I completed 6 chemo treatments.

Take care - I am wishing the best for you and while I can't help with the specifics of penile cancer, I can tell you that cancer is not always the hideous thing you expect it to be.

Best wishes for your sweetheart,
