Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

I am sorry to hear about your mom. From the report it appears that it has spread to many lymph nodes in the abdomen. In that case, it is not curable but controllable with chemo.
If there is jaundice then she needs stenting of the bile duct to reduce that first, then chemo.

Till that time, she needs supportive medicines like pain killers (paracetamol, tramadol, etc), anti-vomiting (domperidone, ondansetron, etc) and lots of fluids.

Hope this helps. I will be available for followup.
Regards
