I saw your post from a day or so ago about your moms duodenal blockage. My moms tumor obstructed the stomach outlet causing the same type symptoms. A gastric bypass was performed and a gastrostomy tube was inserted at the same time. Her cancer was so advanced that the bypass did not help much, but the gastrostomy tube was a God send. She was able to drain her stomach when nauseated preventing vommitting and we were abe to administer medications through it. Best of everything to you and your mom.
