advanced kideny cancer, spread in lungs
 
Hi everyone,
i am writing on behalf of a friend..her father is with stage 4 kidney cancer, spread in lung...Kideny has been removed, chemo therapy with pills, but for less than 4-5 days he is hardly responding....he is awake and kind of aware whats going on,but very week...The pain he is in is just terrible,he is on morphine 2 times a day and was told that one part of his lungs is not functioning any more...they did a head mri-everything is clear there...
so we are all wondering whats going on...his condition changed for less than 3 days....also...any suggestions for alternative pain management? He is already constipated, with catheter....

thanks
