Thanks for your query.

All the symptoms you have described suggest a liver failure, with hepatic encephalopathy. Unfortunately, the prognosis of patients with acute liver failure resulting from stage 4 liver cancer is dismal and the end is near for your friend.

If you have any more queries, feel free to ask.
