Consider hospice: Nobody can tell you the time left. You should very seriously consider getting with your local hospice organization.

Medical Oncology 35 years experience
Strongly agree. Some patients in these circumstances feel they are "not ready for hospice" and miss the benefits of what's usually a very good program.
