just diagnosed

My dad was just diagnosed with bone cancer, not primary. The primary is in his lung. He is undergoing radiation therapy right now and is in severe pain. He was a vital active man until a few months ago when he awoke one day and had difficulty walking. Since then he has been admitted to the hospital, undergone several tests, physical therapy and finally a diagnosis. He is living alone and refuses to stay with anyone. Consequently, I have been staying overnight since he was discharged from the hospital and take him to radiation therapy every day and physical therapy three times a week. Has anyone out there gone through this. What can I expect? Is the pain ever going to subside? Is this just the beginning of the end? The doctors seem very vague to me.
