What is the Prognosis for 92 Year Old Female with Colorectal

User Profile
92 yr old Female..colorectal cancer..cannot operate nor give chemo, nor give radiation. A diverting colostomy was done to relieve blocked bowels. The cancer has gone thru the wall of the colon and into 1-3 lymph nodes. Further into the body cannot be determined, so its T4 N1 M0. My question is on the life expectancy for this person.

It is very unpleasant to give a prognosis for such cases. Only God knows the real prognosis.
