Hi Nadine, So sorry to hear about your grandfather. It must have been a nasty shock to find the cancer has metastisised to the bone. It is never easy for doctors to 'give up' on patients, but if they feel there is nothing more to be done for him, other than palliative care, then their judgement is probably best. They have much experience in this field and can generally tell what is happening. Despite the misdiagnosis and the unfortunate matter of not finding out in time, once cancer has reached this stage, one has to think of quality of life rather than quantity. Your grandfather will be having enough pain and doesn't need the added discomfort and illness induced by Chemo which won't do a scrap of good at this stage. Try getting your local Hospice services involved. I can understand how angry your grandfather feels and how desperately you all want to help him fight the good fight. I recently bade farewell to my best friend of many years. She was only 47. Had cancer which spread to the bone and only found out about it when it was way too late. They told her she only had between 3 and 4 months to live. She elected to have chemo but stopped after the second one as it was worse than the cancer itself. I must add, that her oncologists, while giving her the ultimate choice, did not recommend that she has chemo. They asked her to consider the quality of her remaining days and said that chemo would make her very, very sick indeed. Not worth it really. Sometimes, obviously, chemo is a good thing. We all know of many who have responded well to the drug and are living way beyond their 5 year remission period, which constitutes a complete cure. For now, just spend lots of time with grampa. Make him comfortable, try to keep him happy and pain-free. When the doctors say it's time to give up, then take their advice. There is no point in fighting a battle you can't win. And cancer can be a really mean opponent. I pray for your peace and comfort and that your grandfather will come to terms with his illness and move into the next and eternal phase of life with no fear. God Bless you all.
