Hi - My dad, 68, was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer that has reached the bone in 4 places. it is not aggressive but it is advanced according to the oncologist. He is going to city of hope.
He recently started having pain in his mouth, he wear partial dentures and attributes the pain to that (he lost a tooth and it now moves around a bit)
I don't know what osteonecrosis of the Jaw is...but saw it on one of these forums. Can someone please tell me about this?
He is on the chem pill now and will be getting hormone/chemo iv (lupron?) sometime this month depending on the progress of his kidneys.
I was also wondering if i should take steps to prepare myself for his chemo treatments (shower seat, what diet?) or if he will have significant pain...he is in no pain atm ...occasional dizziness
