You do have some control. Your have control over your emotions, control over your/dad's research, control over the final treatment selected by your father(with your help) and control over the love you have for your father.
This is a fantastic place for support and information. People who really care and love others who they have never met eye to eye. It does not matter, we all face the same, a thing called PCa.
This is not an insurmountable battle we fight. It can be won.
Keep you faith and a postive attitude and help your father do the same. I would encourage you to encourage your dad to come here himself. We are of all ages and from many varied professional careers but all that takes second fiddle to fighting PCa.
