Small Cell Prostatic Cancer alive after one year

After experiencing perineal pain in August 2012 and treated with antibiotics for prostatitis, I was biopsied last March with both adeno (Gleason 9) and much rarer (<200 cases/year in the US) small cell prostatic cancers.  I have subsequently undergone cisplatin/etoposide chemotherapy and IMRT (low-dose radiation therapy) and am thus far asymptomatic from either disease.  However, I am assured there is no protocol or treatment for the highly metastatic small cell disease which kills 60% of victims the first year and 80% the second.  I would like to contact others stricken with this cancer to understand what I can expect most likely this year as the disease finds a new organ destroy and kill me.
