It’s very sad to hear about your wife. It is quite difficult to say accurate survival period after Stage IV bone cancer. But you may also know that Stage IV is the last and worst stage of bone cancer. It also depends on what treatment your wife is getting and your wife response to treatment. As you said it is already spreading to various parts of the spine, I saddened to say survival period is quite less. But confirm from a doctor. Take Care….

Bone cancer occurs when a tumor, or abnormal mass of tissue, forms in a bone. A tumor may be malignant, which means it’s growing aggressively and spreading to other parts of the body. A malignant tumor is often referred to as cancerous.
