At that size it wouldn't surprise me if it ends up consuming the entire host galaxy.

it won't consume its galaxy...it's what keeping it together. every galaxy has a supermassive black hole in the middle, they're just super-massive stars or groups of stars that were the first to achieve "black hole" status and thus attract other matter, thereby creating what we call galaxies.
