Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
It is hard to predict. this is serious diagnosis and treatment is very difficult. Unfortunately there is only palliative treatment now- This sounds like late stage of cancer with metastases and prognosis is very poor.
Wish you good health. Regards
