Dr has said that cant do anything for him. No chemo, radiation, anything. That chemo wd kill him in a week. Do you agree. What is the time frame?

My husband has been diagnosed with stage 3 esophigal cancer - he went through a chemo/ radiation combo ttreatment - The PET scan shows that the cancer is still there - the chemo almost killed him. He has elected to not have any additional treatments...now his hands are always cold & shaking - he forgets words & is often very dizzy - he actually passed out yesterday.....are these signs that the cancer is spreading?
