My brother age 58 had a stint put in yesterday...he is 5'9" and at the hospital his weight was 116. A walking skeleton. His urine is orange/red and he has no aptetite. oxy pain pills and anti-depressants. Tuesday he does in for a 5 hour procedure to find out what stage cancer.
no vomiting yet.
Any idea how much time we have to share with him?

I'm not a doctor but I'm sure that it differs with the type of cancer :/ for some cancers that could be one of the early to mid-early symptom. If no Vomiting occurred that it's a pretty good chance that whatever it is could be in its early stages. Vomiting tends to occur in the late stages in most cases
