My husband was diagnosed spt 2014 stage 4 pancan - liver mets. they gave him less than one year. Here we are, scan stable, so his oncologist will put him on edoxan ( oral chemo) because he feels tired. Anyone experience with this chemo? Thanks

I have not, but this is so great to hear 50 months!  (No surgery I presume?)

What chemo has he been on in total?  There is a thought that you can rechallenge older chemos in later lines if possible (from an oncologist - but he also said the data is limited b/c so few PC patients make it that far).

My mother is 20 months diagnosis of PC so far, stage 4 entire time.  We are moving onto her 5th treatment and 3rd chemo line.  She has responded to every chemo, for a little while at least.

We are also looking into Y90 for her liver mets . Has your husband had any radation to his liver?  

Again, thank you for sharing as you give people hope!
