Despite trying combined chemo and radiotherapy concurrently, the cancer progressed from stage 3 to stage 4 metastasized.  Prognosis less that 12 months. I'm trying to let people know, but every time I tell someone, the pain and distress becomes overwhelming and it's like I'm hearing the news again for the first time. Tonight is really bad, there were some other 'ordinary' disappointments today which seem overwhelming too.  I just want to cry, but don't want to upset my family.  Feel so alone.
