Brief Answer: Please see the details Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for putting your query in XXXXXXX I am a Gastroenterologist (DM). I will advise you to get yourself evaluated and to visit a Gastroenterologist who may advise you an endoscopic examination and colonoscopy and some imaging like ultrasound. It is important as you are 51 years, lost significant weight and has symptoms of vomiting and constipation. Further at this age one should colonoscopy examination as a routine for screening for colorectal cancer. However for symptomatic relief you may take a proton pump inhibitor like rabeprazole along with a prokinetic agent like domperidone and antiemetic agent like ondansetron. And for constipation take a laxative like syrup cremaffin plus which contains milk of magnesia, liquid paraffin and sodium picosulphate I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. If you have any further query I will be happy to answer that too. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
