Unhappy Final Stage of Liver Cancer

We just found out my Uncle has Liver Cancer and its so bad!!!! He has it already in his bones, tumors throughout his body....how do we know how much time he really has? He was just diagnosed tuesday, a week before that he went to the hospital because he was peeing blood and the hospital said he only had a uti...a week later when he went bk, he couldn't walk and it so much pain. He has tumors that are attaching to his spine also. The drained his stomach (almost 4 liters) today....what are the last stages, what else can I expect? His vitals dropped a little but his 02 was still in the 90's...no fever yet

Re: Final Stage of Liver Cancer

Unfortunately it is hard to say. My BIL was told he had 6 months or less and lived for 2 years. It will really depend on the supportive care etc.
