My mother and stepfather received some disturbing news today. He's 87 and went through Prostate Cancer many years ago. He had his prostate removed. Apparently, his urologist has been watching his PSA rise, although we don't know over what period of time. They were told today that the cancer is in his bones. We have no more information at this point and await a consult with an oncologist. They did mention that chemo is out due to his physical condition we think.
Is it possible that the cancer from many years ago has spread to his bones? It seems more likely this is another cancer. There's never a good time for news like this, but it seems to hit harder during the season when everyone is usually so cheerful.
PS - I lost my real father to leukemia in 1993. He died about a month and a half after diagnosis. We were hoping my mother wouldn't have to go through something like this again.
