Proper diet, exercise, weight control among factors that may help, experts say

My Father has a weak heart from prior heart attack two years ago and then was diognosed with stage 4 lung cancer last fall. After many chemo and radiation treatments over the last year he has just enrolled in hospice. In the last two days, he has not been able to eat and he is stressed about not being able to have a bowel movement. I know that none of us are God and that none of us can really predict how much time someone has left to live but I was wondering if anyone knew the average time that someone can continue to live if they have cancer and then stop eating.
Any thoughts on the bowel problem and the lack of appetite issue would be appreciated. Thank you for your feedback.
