Pancreatic cancer, have dry heaves, abdominal pain, tumour in bile duct, not having jaundiced

My mother-in-law has pancreatic cancer . In the last couple of days she has been having spells of dry heaves and is complaining of pain in her abdomen. She was diagnosed 2 months ago. The tumor is at the end of the bile duct so they put a stent in to open it up but did not remove the tumor. She is 90. She is not jaundiced.

I think 90year old lady should be made comfortable in her last years. You said she has pain in her abdomen. pancreatic cancer is notorious for causing severe pain. You need to consult you doctor and give her good pain releiving tablets or patches. Sometimes celiac plexus block gives her good relief. talk to your doctor about this also and then go for treatment
