My dad has several very serious health issues. The main 3 that we are struggling with now are the very severe COPD, stage 3B lung cancer and he is a alcoholic. He is in pain every day and struggles to breathe at all times. He does not take care of himself and I'm pretty sure he has given up. He is currently taking 10 treatments of radiation and wants to discontinue any further treatments. His oncologists refuses to take no for an answer. He insists daddy continue with at least 25 treatments. My dad does not want to continue due to chest pain and other symptoms he's experienceing during the radiation. His COPD is what's so bad at this point but his oncologists doesn't even acknowledge the copd. How do we convince him to let us stop and quit pressuring dad to continue.
