In brief: See below

Metastatic colon cancer is sensitive to chemotherapy, but life expectancy is related to the patients other medical co-morbid conditions and ability to tolerate multiple cycles of chemotherapy; average survival is around 2 years.

In brief: Unpredictable

One time such spread average survival of 6 6 months is no longer true, thanks to advanced surgical techniques, with resections, with chemotherapy and radiation surviving 3 or more years, depending on y the response.
