stage 4 lung cancer and no pain?

My 84 yr old father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer on 12-26-12. It has spread to both lungs and lymph nodes and his liver. He elected not to do chemo as he was told he has 2-6 months to live and is currently in hospice. He is doing very well. He is not having any pain anywhere except for an occasional headache that Tylenol takes care of. He was having a bit of nausea at first but hasn’t had any problems for 2 weeks. Is there a chance he wont have any pain or is it inevitable?

Hi Sugarbaby, Tylenol (acetaminofen or paracetamol) or any other type of pain killer will cause damage to his liver & kidneys. It's only provides a temporary relief to your father. Frequent consumption should be avoided. Where do you come from ? Inbox me I will send you something
