Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. With stage 4 malignancy of bowel, survival odds are not good and life expectancy is less than a year.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
