I spoke with my Dads oncologist today. His prognosis for cancer is less than 6 months. If the current formula for pain management isn't successful, he will refer us to Hospice.
The issue is, my Dad doesn't know his prognosis. I want to tell him so that he can do whatever he needs to-get stuff in order, make amends if need be, talk to people, etc BUT, my siblings do NOT want to tell him...or at least not now anyway.
They want to either wait until Hospice is called in or his symptoms get so bad,
it will be obvious to him that his days are limited.
Any info, advice or experience you have in this would be greatly appreciated.
