It's been a long time since I posted here. That's a good thing since it means my dad has been doing okay. Unfortunately about 6 weeks ago they placed my dad into hospice care. So there really are no more options for him. I have appreciated the responses and information from those on here. If anyone ever gets to "limited choices" I would suggest what my dad did. They gave him a radio-isotope injection (forgot the technical name). It doesn't prolong life but he's had a reduction in pain. Given his cancer is throughout his spine and pelvis the reduction of pain is critical for him at this time. The injection DOES give relief!!! This disease is so hard on those that have it, but it's also hard on those who support and caregive. Having a site like this offers some solace..... Thanks everyone.
