You got it exactly right. The TESTING just gives us information. How we use the information remains problematical and will remain so until more tests are developed that will give us more information about
the aggressiveness of the PC.
I'm not sure about
the lethal argument regarding PC.
The only good thing to say about
it is that we tend to last MUCH longer with it.
I have an incurable G 4+3. I have failed surgery and radiation and I'm having to fight it with HT. It is miserable, but here I am, just back from a trip out East, where we had a grand time and the worst things was a bout of bronchitis late in the trip (a NORMAL person's ailment).
December 1st wil mark the start of my second HT vacation.
December 2nd will be the 6th anniversary of my dx.
Now, seriously, how many cancers are incurable, failing primary and secondary treatments, and yet the patient is still doing pretty well after 6 years.
Certainly not lung, brain, gallbladder, and even colon cancer.
I am not the exception here.
In that sense, it is the "good" cancer. But I HATE that term. My life seems to be one series of high stakes medical tests and dealing with SE. So, there is a mental and physical toll. Yeah, but I guess compared to the aforementioned cancers, it is the "good" cancer -- but it ain't good!
