I needed some advice and found this website to be very helpful. I have been reading all the posts and I wish everyone here the best of luck with their teatments. I pray for a cure. My father-in-law was diagnosed with prostate cancer November 2009 and he was on hormone treatment and finished radiation in May 2010. Treatments were delayed since he underwent torp surgery (I believe this is the name). Everything seemed to be going ok but he was experiencing bone pain and this past August we found out it had spread all over his bones. I am confused by the doctors and his complaints of pain and they never re-checked his PSA score or did another bone scan until it metastasized everywhere. Also, we just found out that it had spread to his liver. My question is, did anyone have this happen and what can we expect, are there any treatments (chemo) that helped anyone. I forgot to mention his initial PSA score was 1,600 and it went down to 150, then it was 33 and now back to one hundreds. It seems the hormone treatment is not working but we are waiting to see the latest PSA score. I hope it went down since hormone treatmetns at the moment seems to be the only treatment to keep the cancer under control. Anyone have the cancer spread to the liver and what treatment did you have? Was liver surgery an option at this point?
