I am 57 and just returned from my appt to learn of this diagnosis. I've read some of the posts on this site over the last hour or so and it seems I haven't been handed a death sentence quite yet. Luckily I have a great family and support, just hope I don't let them down and go too soon. More tests, bone and ct, are scheduled for Monday, so another week before I learn the results.
I'm anxious to learn if there is still hope for more than the 2-6 years my doctor mentioned if it is advanced. Any members out there that have beaten the odds? If so, what can I do to head down the same path? So far every test has been worst case so I anticipate the results will probably show it has spread.
I appreciate any insight you may have.
Thank you very much!
