    Pancreas Cancer life expectancy

    My father in law is 82 years old. he was diagnosed with a Pancreatic and liver cancer stage 4 in April. The bile duct between the pancreas and liver was blocked, so they did a surgery to open it and put a tube. In May, Doctors said he has 6 months to live, and there is no treatment. 1 week ago he had a very high fever, so we rushed him the hospital. Now he is hallucinating (not a lot), has swelling feet and hands, and the bile duct between the liver and pancreas is blocked, Surgeons tried to open it but this time the cancer is very big so they failed. He is not eating well (very small amount), but he is still can talk and walk and read. He is not in pain. Some days he is very well, some days he is not.

    I need to know what to expect? How much time do we still have with him. Some people say 1 to 2 weeks. Is it true?
