In 4th stage of lung cancer. Vomitting whatever food is given. Suggestions?

My mother is in the final stages of 4th stage lung cancer . After three different rounds of chemo , her last chemo treatment ended in June, 2012. We ve been trying to make her as comfortable as possible. The problem is that she vomits daily - whether she has salad or chicken noodle soup or a more rich meal like mac & cheese, turkey and dressing. It seems to come up whether it s light, medium or heavy. Do you have any suggestions

Hi, we can try tablets for vomiting like ondensetron, domperidone, stemetil. If she is taking those tablets and still vomiting every feed, we must do endoscopy to look at the possible disease sitting on food pipe and if it is so, we can put stent to relieve it. One more thing, is there any headache ? As disease can recur in brain and can cause vomiting. Take care.
