    Hi BrianV,

    Sorry to hear about your diagnosis, hopefully the chemo will kick your Prostate cancer in the u know what. I would assume your cancer has spread outside of your Prostate, to what other point(s) of your body has it spread? You said you were on cancer pills, what is the name of that medication? What was your Gleason score? With more information maybe we can share some of our experiences to help you.
