Welcome to the site. Sorry that you had to find us all and I'm sorry also to hear about your dad. I am glad though that you have joined us all here as you will get a load of support and help from everyone.
My dad had CC and I was his carer throughout his fight. You ask about pain and both Lainy and Percy have talked some about that. Yes not everyone has pain or severe pain. My dad spent his last few weeks in hospice care. They took him in there to deal with his nausea and my dads pain was not severe. Yes he did have some pain for some time and that was dealt with whilst he was at home successfully with codeine based tablets. And when dad went into hospice and throughout his last few weeks the pain did not get severe either. Yes he did have some bouts of pain, but that was controlled successfully with pain killing injections as and when he needed them. I guess what I am trying to say that if your dad does experience pain at some point then it should be able to be controlled. I was concerned about pain when my dad went into hospice just as you are with your dad, and I was told that they would be able to keep any pain under control. And I have to say that they were indeed able to do that. Just thought I would share that with you as that was my dads experience here.
I read your posts and it takes me back to when I was in your shoes with my dad. Do make the most of this time and treasure each moment. I can still remember here when my dad was sitting up as well and we would talk about stuff from years ago! This is a tough time, but please make the most of it as well. And know as well that we are all here for you and we care, and we know what you are going through too.
My best wishes to you and your dad,
