Thank you for the query.
Abdominal fluid (ascites
) is usually an indication of generalized cancer. Therefore he seems to be in the final stages of his life. Usually it takes about 6 months from advanced esophagus
The most important for him is to make it as easy and painless as possible. He should receive from his doctor Morphine
patches so he wont suffer pain.
For the appetite he should receive steroids
If the esophagus will become narrow so he wont be able to eat, endoscopic prosthesis implantation
should be helpful.
Hope this will help.
