Abdominal cancer

He was diagnosed with Kidney Cancer around september 2014. The Cancer then also found to be spread on other parts of the body. We consulted Dr. Kamran khan of Saifi Hospital, Mumbai, Dr. Anoop Ramani of Leelavati Hospital, Mumbai and Dr. mehboob Phanse. Doctors refused to perform any surgery and advised to take tablet 'Sorafenib 200' twice a day but due to side effects of the tablet, He is unable to take the tablet twice, Hence he is now taking it once a day. Recently, A CT scan was done a few days ago and the report says the disease is on an increase. We just want to know whether we are on a right path for his treatment or is their Any alternative which may help us help him. Please do suggest the name of Doctors whom we can consult no matter what part of the world they are.
