I am a prostate cancer patient since 15 months. My Gleason score was also 9 but there was no spread of cancer any where else. I was immediately put on LHRH (Hormone Therapy) and I was given IMRT (Intensity Modulated Radio Therapy) to my abdomen and prostate. After a year my PSA is at 0.002

Even if the cancer has spread to bones prognosis of this type of cancer is good. What other treatment they are giving to your husband besides Hormone Therapy. Because Hormone therapy is just to buy time so that other treatment can progress.
