My father got prostate cancer 7 years ago (2004). He got his testicle & bladder removed. The disease got under control after the surgery. But now it came back dramatically. The PSA now is over 3000 and the bone metastasis getting worse. He feels much in pain and now taking Panadol everyday for pain killer. Though he still can walk but getting less active. My dad now got admission at a cancer hospital in Melb. During the time with the hospital, they now give my dad injection for bones strengthen and radiation for pain killing, (not for cancer treatments). The pains sound a bit under control now. The problem is the doctor does not offer him ANY treatment for cancer. He said my Dad got a few months left and nothing can help now.
Should I believe what the doctor said and is there any other suggested option for him now?
