My dad was diagnosed, in October, with advanced prostate cancer with spreading to his pelvis, bones and the lymph nodes and his gleason score is 5+4. Unfortunately we received the news that his cancer is manageable but incurable which was the hardest piece of news I have heard because he really is one of my best friends.
The last couple of months have been full of doctors appointments, building a treatment plan and getting out heads around it all.
He has just started chemotherapy and is having the hormone therapy every 3 months. He will be having chemotherapy every 3 weeks for 18 weeks and then it's onto radiotherapy after that.
I would love to hear about some other people's experiences and what we have to expect. I know that everybody is different, I'm just trying to wrap my head around the here and now and what's to come.
Many thanks to anyone who replies, I am truly grateful.
