Oncologist, Surgical 's  Response
Dear Sir,

Sorry to hear about you father's condition. Chemo can be associated with a lot of side effects.
If his cancer had metastasised to other organs, then the prognosis is not very good. I cannot exactly comment on the time period but the cancer will definitely spread without chemo.

Hoping for the best.
