Was your wife diagnosed as Stage IV from the get-go? Has she been on any sort of chemo?
I'm not Stage IV, but I do have ILC and am on chemo. Doesn't sound like the tamoxifen and lupron are doing the trick for her.
Most oncs tend to treat lobular and ductal bc the same. Mets to the lining of the stomach cavity is a common place for lobular cancers to go, like the other posters said. And CTG is right--it'd be worth going to a major cancer center for another opinion.
Good luck to both of you.
