Hello sir,
From the history you have given, looks like your father is suffering from Chronic kidney disease.He has to be initiated on hemodialysis, for his general condition to improve.The other option could be peritoneal dialysis which might not be as effective as hemodialysis in the present situation .
Hope i was of help.
