Hello,
I have gone through your query and understood your concerns. The span of life after spread is usually decided by how fast the cancer cells are spreading and its rate of multiplication. Usually at this stage age will also comes under conclusion and as they are bedridden chances of infection and aspiration becomes the choice for decreasing the span. But we cannot decide particular time for this. Thank you.
