Dear sir,
From your description it looks like a hormone refractory prostate cancer. I'm not sure if he is investigated for spread of cancer! Treatment depends on it.
The options for him include change of hormone or adding a chemo. Surgery is an option if he is very fit. Radiotherapy to prostate also could be considered as an alternative.
