Hi,
the question how many days the pt will survive can not be predicted, as u say 4th stage i would recommend u to consult an oncologist nearby who could offer u some palliative treatment like chemotherapy depending on his general condition and tolerability.If he responds to chemotherapy there can be significant symptomatic improvement.Plz mail the detailed reports for furthur opinion.
