Respected user , hi
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.com
I have evaluated your query thoroughly , sorry to hear about the same .

* As there is spread to multiple organs , now it is not curable as you know
very well by this time , treatment is only & only supportive to take care of
symptoms and general supportive care .
* Life expectancy can not be uttered by any consultant with highest
efficiency as there are innumerable factors governing it , most important
one is destiny written by almighty God which is beyond all the researchers
of the world ! hard to believe but it is the fact of universe .

Wishing him less and less suffering till his last breath .
Welcome for further assistance .
Regards .
