Hi welcome to the health care magic

Sorry to heard that your father having lung cancer

It has been spread to bones, hence i am sorry but lung cancer has been metastasized to outside lung and so prognosis is poor here....

In lung tumour surgical resection done but here tumour spread to bone Hence if needed chemotherapy or radiotherapy can be given according to need...

Prognosis according to history seems poor here

Chemotherapy choice depend on type of lung cancer whether it is small cell or non small cell carcinoma

Hope your concern solved

Take care
