My mom was just diagnosed with biliary cancer. It has metastasised to her
lungs and is "quite extensive" according to her surgeon. I know
that doctors are uneasy giving life expectancies to family. Mom is 79 and
does notwant to fight it anyway. We need some realistic time frame to arrange
for her palliative care. The surgeon said "very soon up to 2
months". What have people found for life expectancy? Thank you.
