Hi to you, too!
I am very sorry to hear about your dad! Sounds terrible!
I do hope that I don't insult you or somesuch when I say that... well... I can understand the doctors reaction. No, no, let me explain!
About half of my extended family are doctors. Since I have a cancer myself (brain), I have talked to a lot of them about it, and about cancer in general.
To them, it's a very nasty thing, as it usually cannot be cured, thus they have to see terrible things connected with it. After a while, they simply have to force themselves to mentally withdraw from the shock and horror. Otherwise they'd be incapable of working at all.
I've heard of quite a few patients where they said that there really is nothing left, and the patient should have his last months peacefully at home.
DCA is something many doctors in the USA are worried about trying out, as there could be legal results, idiotic as this sounds. I'm lucky, I guess, as the docs here in Germany have heard little of DCA, and are quite willing to try it out...
In your place I'd try getting some pain killers for him, as well as DCA. You'll probably want to get him to a high-ish dose, say 25 mg/kg and see if it helps.
Having lived in the USA for a few years, I must admit to having a rather low opinion of your hospitals, and if they say they can't (or won't) help... would you want to leave him in a hospital room? He's much better off at home.
I wish you the very best of luck!
