My father is in dire straits. He originally had prostate cancer and it spread to his bones, lung and organs. He is in severe pain and is medicated with morphine. His psa is 5000 and doctors don't have much hope. I wish there was something that I could do for him. Hope it's not too late. I still have faith. Any assistance would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Ron

Ron,
If you can tell us a bit more history it may help us help you. You say he started originally with prostate cancer that was already metastatic. How long has this been? What treatments has he already endured?

Welcome to HW. I hope we can help in some way.

It has been 5 years since my father was diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had the seeds implanted but his psa still rose. He went on chemo for 2 years and psa went down a little but rose after a while. It quickly spread to his bones. Now it's in his lungs and liver. He is currently in ICU due to his potassium being dangerously high. He is on morphine every four hours for his pain. Let me know if you need any more information. Thanks
