- Treated with orchiectomy with drop of PSA levels , then rose again and used hormone therapy ( Zoladex, casodex, lupron and luflutanide ) with good effcts initially then PSA started to rise again . Current level is 60 .
- His prostate has grown extensively and blocked both ureters, Rt kidney developed hydronephrosis , Let kidney was managed initially with stent (double J ) which was changing every 3 months . He developed frank hematuria wich necessiated  removal of stent and currently on Lt nephrostomy .

I am sorry to hear that your father is having intractable pain.

You could try contacting any cancer center which is closest to where your father stays.
