My father is 63 yrs old. he is suffering from bone cancer . This Bone cancer is an out of PC. After surgery in last year still is spreading . he has taken Radio Therapy two times. then back and legs pain little bit less for few months. Now he is feeling too much pain in back, both legs, arms and some time shoulders also. i have tried out apply Patch. but after stick a patch he was feeling too much vomiting then we consulted Dr. Dr was telling that no more treatment will work on his cancer so we have started to give him Morphine tablets of 10mg but after took this tablet of 3 days latrine was totally stopped and after eat anything vomiting was happen. so we admitted in hospital. they have given them Enima and some bottle but after he was too weak and left hand side of mouth sense was gone, i cant understand what he speaks. He cant take food , cant take liquids , everything comes out by vomiting . pain is still there. He sleeps more n more. The color of the body and eyes looks yellow and eyes looks bigger. Dr said that take him back to home. and he is still in same condition.
Could you please someone help me and inform me what will happen in next ?
Is this very serious condition / last stage?
How many days he can survive?
How much i can help him?
My family is too much confused , we cant understand what we can do for him?
Thanks & regards
I'm so sorry for your dad's suffering and for your family.
It appears there may be some additional key facts you could find out. The main fact is whether your dad has been through sound hormonal blockade therapy that no longer works. That would be the standard of care for a recurring prostate cancer patient such as you describe.
I'm assuming he has had such therapy, along with bone support, such as with the drug Zometa, that often goes with it. Is that so? I don't understand why a recurring patient would not have been given such therapy if surgery and radiation did not work within the short period of about a year.

My father has expired on 14-July-2010. Last stage of cancer spread upto skull. so sometimes he felt unknown pain. He didn't eat or drink anything but 5-july his diabetes increased and and complained about pain in whole body and he got heart attack. we got success to save his life that time. After 3 days ICU no more problems, patch & morphine tablet worked but he felt continues vomiting. That time his kidney,lungs,heart and lever almost work up to 50% only and water filled in body. He needed O2 when do some heard activity like urine. From 13th night to 14th 8PM he didn't responding. That time time we just prayed to GOD for him only. I tried to keep him happy in last days.
By the way, GOD is Great. We can add life in days but we can't add days in life.
