My dad was recently diagnosed with Myelodysplastic Syndrome (MDS), not surprisingly he is dealing with the news in a bad way and not reading any details on the condition or treatment options. This has been hard for the family to deal with, as trying to speak to him either ends up in an argument or a change of subject. It feels like he has given up on life already, he is 69 years old and before his diagnosis was in very good health.
I am wondering if anyone has any advice on how best to deal with the conversation of treatment options, and for him to talk about how he is feeling. I have a large family but at the moment none of us have been able to get through to him.
