I am new to this, however let me tell you that my Mom was diagnosed on Sept. 17 with pc. I was on vacation. When I came back I did as much research as possible. I was thinking of withholding so information from her (she has no access to the internet). My sister and I discussed it and decided that she should have all the information available so that 1) she could talk intelligently 2) that there would be no surprises down the road. This was the best thing we could have done. She is informed and knows that the surgery she faces in a week will be the fight of her life. But she is now ready for it because we told her all we knew. Good luch wth you dad...I know what you are going thru
