My father is 85 years old... He had prostate cancer over 10 years ago and it is back with a vengence... His PSA is now up to 80... It has spread to 2 different spots in the bone(his back, spine)... He is in no discomfort... However we have tried most options and the only one left is chemo... I have been on the internet for days trying to see the success rate in older people... My fear is that we will put him through the chemo and beat the cancer only for the chemo to destroy his body... As it is now he still drives loves to go out and socialize and plays the guitar... We are so torn... Does anyone have any advise... Is chemo a good move or should we ride it out and keep him comfortable... This is so hard...
