I had left this board because although my husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer (gleason 9) in January of 2012, he was diagnosed with another primary cancer - lung cancer with spread to bones. He had 40 radiation treatments for the prostate, ending in May. 8 weeks of chemo for lung ending May 7th. Lung mets disappeared and bone mets shrunk. 3 weeks agao, all is back.
In addition he had cancer in his urethra for which he just had the tumors returned. Surgeon said that most likely HT (lupron) is not working? After checking slides again, doctors now say that there are not two primaries, all the cancer is due to the prostate. He is not really in pain just very tired.
I'm not sure how to interpret this news. Choosing to look at the positive side in that at least one doctor will now handle all the treatment and we've been told treatment is the same regardless. If anyone can shed any light I'd appreciate it.
