Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Thanks for the query.I am sorry about your mom and her serious disease.
These are very bad signs and prognosis is very poor. Statistically it is about 3-6 months. But of course it is not easy to predict and it depends from man to man. Also if she recieves any chemoth life may be prolonged for few months but generally if she lives 6 months it will be optimistic.
Wish you good health.
