What is the life expectancy of a 55 yr old man with Metastatic non small lung carcinoma

Posted by sarah

The cancer has spread to his bone, liver, and adrenal glads.  It is in the left lobe of the lung and a spot on the liver Per the scans it is heavily concentrated in the bones and skull Per doctor visit yesterday they think it is now in his spinal fluid.   at this time the doctor will not give prognosis until after chemo.  But from everything I have read the expectancy is only 4 to 6 months and the Chemo may only buy a month or 2.  But now with the complication of it being in the spine I think it is a matter of time until it gets in the brain.  I need to be realistic because he has family out of state and country that would like to come see him.
