He needs further investigations to see the present status of disease. It is likely that the tab has stopped working as it has been 2 years. He needs to undergo PSA and bone scan or PET CT to assess where the spread is and treat accordingly.

If there is bone spread radiation is best. Others reasons of pain need to be dealt accordingly.
