Metastasise of advanced prostate cancer has a poor prognosis. Unfortunately, these complications are a painful and dreaded long process. Outcome will depend on treatment and the response to the treatment. It is more important to ensure that your father has edaquate pain relief and a good support system.

Good luck.
