Brain tumor survival chances?

The better question is how is your quality of life in terms of mobility & cognitive function? What can't you do after the treatment? Now what can you do after the treatment?
I suggest that you look at David Bailey's web site, he was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiform grade IV - (there is no higher grade than 4) and given 6 months to live. He survived 14 years

Even your medical team cannot know for certain.

Did they place a permanent shunt in your brain to drain the excess fluid?

You may also find reading a more universal Anita Moorjani's book "Dying to be Me" which encompasses various faiths / beliefs.
Perhaps she also was 'lucky'.

Ask yourself, what are you able to do today, that you couldn't do yesterday?
Carpe diem - seize the day!

That nobody can say to you. If everything is done and no cancer is there anymore it could last for years, but if it still comes back it might be the possibility that this person isn't alive in less than two months.
Sorry to say that, but even a doctor can't do a prognosis..
