Pelvic bone cancer, breast cancer, skin cancer. Radiation therapy, zobone drip treatment. Prognosis?

My friend of 82yrs has been diagnosed with stage IV cancer Pelvic bone cancer , breast cancer , lower back cancer, skin cancer, stomache cancer and spots on her liver. she has had radiation for the pelvic bone cancer and is on Zobone drip treatment once a month. The doctor told her family she has between 12hrs - 14days to live. This is her second week and she is much better, in high spirits and walking unaided. Is this remission? Must we still expect the worst?

Thanks for writing to us.
It s good that she is feeling better now with the help of medicines but this does not change her prognosis. With so many cancer cells inhibiting her body, she can have a multiple organ failure anytime. Just try to make her life enjoyable till she is here.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
