Have pancreatic cancer, spread to other organs. Cannot walk or lift arms. How long left to live?

Hello, My grandfather is 82 years old, he was diagnoised with pancreatic cancer . He is not eating at all,all he drinks is boost. He has been sleeping for all day most days. He has jauntice and his bile duct is blocked up and they have tried to put a stint in the bile duct 3 times now and it keeps getting blocked. The cancer has spread to other organs around the pancreas , and he has fluid lining his stomach from the cancer spreading. He can not walk on his own any more and two weeks ago he was able to, he can barely life his arms. How long do you think he has left to live? Is there any other treatments other than chemo to try and get rid of this?
