More to come in a later post about my Come to Jesus meeting with my oncologist yesterday. But he did provide some eye opening stats on Median Life Expectancy for men with Stage IV, metastasized (to a major organ i.e. lungs), aggressive, Gleason 8 prostate cancer. They are as follows:
No Treatment – 12-18 months
HormoneTherapy only – 32 months
HT and chemo – 49 months
This is why I’ve agreed to chemotherapy starting July 28, 2014.
