Several months: Ability to survive advanced liver cancer when unable to take oral intake and requires treatment for bad infection depends on how the infection responds to newer antibodies and status of liver function. If severely jaundiced with high bilirubin then end stage liver function i imminent. If infection brought under control and jaundice absent, then effective chemo may be found.
