: It seems like this has all happened soo fast, and actually it has. My dad was diagnosed with esophageal cancer in early spring. Now there's been more tumors found , one on his spine, brain, and spots on the liver. I'm in shock (!!!) as he's vomitting and scared tonight that he's passing on soon. He hasn't eaten in a month or more. Just drinks Ensure. Yesterday and today he's been vomitting, and I was wondering if this means any specific thing. I have no one to talk to, him and my mom are in Maine. I'm in Oklahoma and I'm going there next week. Thanks. Email if you want.
Beth, I hate to say it but it doesn't sound good for your dad. My mother just passed away last week from SCLC. She had gotten to where she didn't eat anything unless it was in ice form. She was vomitting every day for almost 6 weeks. Her weight dropped rapidly because of that and the cancer. She opted for no treatment fromt the begining. (age 74, dx 4-5-2000) I have been told the vomiting was probably from the cancer spreading to the brain. I hope this is not your dad's case, but. Keep the faith. If you need to talk just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. LOVE and HUGS Maggie
