Eddie Montgomery of the country group Montgomery Gentry has a history of our affliction that took his father at age 52.

When you read the article below, the extended experience guys can read between the lines. It is very likely that Eddie has a later stage disease even though the article says "they think they got it all". Eddie was complaining about pelvic pain and an xray showed the doctor something?

Hmmm, nothing at all in the papers or news here. Strange how things sorta fade away or is never mentioned, other than an initial news bite on the radio, then silence.

My older brother is a country radio personality.  He says this all was in the news some time ago.  The following article says Montgomery had his surgery in early December:

I also saw this story a few weeks ago and his doc was quoted saying that "We got all of the cancer and he doesn't need to worry about this anymore." My first thought was "Huh?" Must be one helluva doc to guarantee that!

Another notable, Vince Flynn (the author) found out he has it also and he's in his mid-40's.
