NO: It is controllable and chemo can slow the progress.

Just possibly: I'm going to assume that the cancer is one of the common types of adenocarcinoma and that the diagnosis is correct. Arch surg jan 2009 (source for the "b" designation) has survival curves for IV ~50% at 12 mo, ~35% at 24 mo, ~15% at 60 mo at which point they level off, i.e., there are 10-year survivors. Good luck.
