Swollen stomach with pain. On morphine. Any other treatment options?

hello, my grandma is in hospital and has been for 2 weeks. She has been on a drip for most of this time as has not been able to keep down any food and they say her stomach /gut is very swollen and she is in pain. They surgeon said he cant do anything about this so they want to take her off the drip and then follow with morphin I guess and watch her die. Is there really no cure for this as she is talking and it doesnt seem right to allow this to happen so easily.

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
Thanks for calling H.C.M.F.
Your description says that your grand mother is at her last days unable to take any thing in side through the mouth.
With out knowing any details of the case it is not wise to comment upon the condition. It may be that she had some problem in the throat.
As your doctors advised you can keep her on morphine and let her have infusions with a gap of 3 to 4 days to prevent hyper hydrosis.
Wishing her a comfertable time.
Best regards.
