With all this said he did lupron and theat did not work AND now is going to have a orchiocotmy as well as they want him to go on zometa. Has anyone had anything good or bad happen with zometa. They wants weekly infusions. He has a spot on his spine and rib adn has undergone radiation therapy for the past month for his shoulder was mestatic. He feels good . I still worry baout his length of life can spomeone set me startight whether we should be aware or not of the length of his life. All of us children live in differetn states and dont want to be absent if this is bad news.
