I'm very new to this board so I don't know any one or know much about this disease, so any help at all would be appreciated.
Yesterday, my dad, age 57, found out he has prostate cancer and it has already metastasized into his left hip joint and pelvis. It was a shock to all of us as we expected to hear he had arthritis in his hip, not cancer (we didn't even think about cancer). It dropped a huge bomb on us. We don't know if there is any more cancer yet as he just went through one MRI, but I'm sure tons of test are about to come his way.
What I am looking for is any information people can share with me about this such as experiences, what we as a family will be going through, and how I can make sure my dad is getting the best treatments and all. So please any help would be great as my mind is spinning so fast thinking about the worst.
