M dog has mast cell tumor

We just found out that our 10 year old dog, Marly, has a mast cell tumor on her leg. Our vet doesn't want to amputate due to her age so we are going to try Prednisone and Pepcid AC. I was hoping some of you that have gone through this and could give me some insights. I would like to know what she's going to go through physically and was also wanting to know about life span. Our vet said a few years but from what I read in an article it sounds more like months so I am wondering which is right because those are big differences. Any help, info, or tips ould be greatly appreciated. We of course want to keep Marly around for as long as possible but without pain and sickness. Thank you.
