Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
Honestly, liver metastases are bad sign and it indicated poor prognosis. but exact life survival is hard to predict since it depends on your iummune system and presence of other metastases. Sometimes, if there is only single liver lesion ,then liver metastasectomy can be performed but other metastases should be ruled out by PET scan. If there are multile lesions then chemoth is the only option.
Wish you good health. Regards
