I agree with Marion in that getting your mums vomitting under control should be addressed now. My dad had a lot of issues with vomitting and it made him very uncomfortable to say the least. If your mum is able to keep down liquids right now, then maybe supplements such as Ensure or Scandishake may be of use to her? And maybe as well she could have things such as soup? When my dad was having his troubles with vomoitting, his specialist suggested foods that were easy to break down and soup was one of the things he recommended.
Best wishes to you and your mum,

Thanx everyone for the support you all are providing.
Marion,My mom is able to retain liquids like pomegranate juice,orange juice etc. but as soon as we try to give her semi solids she starts feeling like vomiting and in a few minutes everything is out.we are planing to give her green tea to reduce her nausea tic condition n to improve her appetite .we hav also talked to the physician and he says we can give her semi solid and there is nothing wrong with the surgery performed.You are right dear both of us need to be strong and support each other after all m her only son,one of my sister is married and another is with me supporting everyone a lot including my dad ,who is here wit us watching my mom in this condition everyday,its really hard for all of us to see this .M really glad to have support of all of you.
please keep me updated.

Hello Mohit…..I would also like to welcome you to our site. Mohit, I would not worry much about the metal stent procedure planned for January. Most likely your Mom will be fine with the current, plastic, one until then. Of bigger concern is her continuous vomiting. Are there some foods your Mom can keep down? If she can hold down the liquids then I would make sure to give her plenty of that including, protein shakes. Also, do you have the opportunity to speak with the physician? He should be able to clarify whether the vomiting is being caused by an obstruction. Regarding Cyberknife : It is one of several pin-point radiations, also called Stereotactic Radiation. More centers may be able to offer thesw type of therapy. However, I believe that you need to address your Mom’s vomiting first so that she can have some reasonable comfort. Hang in there. You are of big support to her.

We have tried mint tea and green tea to help with the nausea. We also have nausea meds. Nothing seems to take away the nausea completely, but these 3 things have helped. Blessings, SusanDecember 4, 2010 at 1:52 pm #45018
Thanx a lot Lainy,Gavin n Susan for your support.
Lainy I would like to tell you again that the surgery being unsuccessfull, the docs have told us dat chemo would not be a good option moreover they say that whatever you try the result is gonna be zero,but we dnt want to jus leave everything.In India cyberknife is done only in two places,n going there means letting mom know about CC(as already said she is not mentally so strong,that we can inform her).
one of the Doc said that its better if we take her back home n give her a quality life for the rest period,but how is dis possible when she is unable to eat anything n pukes whatever she eats.Again Docs have said that the metal stent needs to be fitted in january as the plastic stent she is having will get jammed.I m really confused about what to do and when to get the metal stenting done,again can cyberknife be used after metal stenting has been done?
Today I went to a homeopathy doc n he said we have dealt with such cases n hav got sucess in some of them,n gave us some medicine.he also gave some medicine to reduce nausea.
Fighting with all these everyday is very difficult for my mom ,n even for me to see her like this.
Please do keep me informed if you all get to know nything new,please….

Dear Mohit – I have nothing more to offer than what Lainy and Gavin had said except to say that we are here for you and we care very much about the struggle you are going through. We share in your struggle and will do what we can to provide you support and genuine caring. Blessings, SusanDecember 3, 2010 at 9:55 pm #45016gavinModerator
Welcome to the site. I am sorry that you had to find us all and I am sorry to hear about your mum. But I am am glad that you have joined us all as you will get a ton of support from us all here. We will help if we can and if you have any questions that we can help with then ask away and I know that the great members here will do what they can to help you if they can answer them.
I can’t help you with any of the treatmeants that you mention as my dad never had any of them, but I am sure that others will be along to share their experiences of them if they or there loved ones have underwent any of them. What have your mums doctors siad or recommended regarding treatment for your mum right now? Has your mum been given anything to help with her nausea right now? As Lainy has siad to you, there are a wdie range of meds out there that can help with nausea. My dad had issues with this and he tried a wide range of meds and combinations of meds. He also had a metal stent inserted as well.
I hope that you will keep coming back here Mohit and please let us know how things go with your mum.
My best wishes to you and your mum,
