Hi
To estimate Life expectancy I need to know cancer stage, however from symptoms you described 6 month is his life expectancy

hi,
exact period cannot be stated .
it depends upon his overall immunity and the stage of cancer.
If there are regional or distant metastasis,especially in the liver and kidneys,then he won’t last more than a year.
He should undergo radiotherapy/chemotherapy to prolong his life span.
thanks

Life expectancy in stomach cancer depends on the nature of the cancer cells..its type..and the stage of the tumor..
If he is refusing to get chemotherapy and radiotherapy then I recommend trying to lower his pain and suffering ,by taking PPI medications and undergoing an alkaline diet ..
Depend on soft foods and juices..

Well, according to the stage, we can anticipate the life expectancy..

But i believe he does not have much time, am sorry to say that…
Try go improve his quality of life by providing him with the proper palliative ttt
