Is palliative care the only option? How does that work?
My dad has multiple comorbidities and a significant cardiac history so far. We’re told he’s not a candidate for bladder removal. He may not be a candidate for immunotherapy, chemo, or radiation either. We just don’t know. We don’t want the treatment to harm him in a worse way than he is now. We go to Dana Farber on Wednesday for their opinion. Is palliative care the only option? How does that work? What happens if there is nothing that can be done? There must be something to help pain and suffering that may be awaiting us. Can anyone please share their experiences?
