Dear Mr. sarnakur,
I am sory to convey you that your father has entered in a very advanced stage of the disease. He is resistant to all forms of therapy now and is also intolerant to other active treatment.. Please give him only palliative management to comfort him. No active treatment is advocated. Please consult your primary physician who will guide you for this form of terminal care and comfort.
