Suggest treatment for prostate cancer

Thank you. My husband s prostate cancer has advanced to his bones. He s a skeleton of his former self. He s heavily medical with a regimen of several drubs including Lorazipan, Morphine and Haldal. Oddly, he has had an appetite, drinking milkshakes, oatmeal, chicken, and some pudding. He s urinating copious amounts of fluid. He has a catheter. Today, the pain is very intense, although I m adhering to the drug protocol as well as remaining in touch with the hospice nurse. The pain is everywhere, and today he s said its in his lower back, a place it s not been before. After all that, my question is two food: will bone cancer eventually affect his organs; and is the addition of lower back pain an important indicator. I can t see imagine that he can survive very far into the future given his current condition.. Many thanks.
