Hi Doctor, My grandfather is 87 and now for the past


Q: Hi Doctor,
My grandfather is 87 and now for the past one week he is very tired and very weak. From february onwards he was having vomiting but was ok in taking food. But now he is not at all in a condition to even get up and sit. He is not able to eat a single food not even water. Now his daily intake is only a few drops of water. He has become very thin and pale. When we consulted doctor he said that in grandpa's food pipe there is a growth or may be hiatel hernia due to which he is not able to eat. Nothing is reaching Into his stomach. And doctor also told that an operation cannot be recommended due to his age.

Doctor, please guide us..what should we do to save him.
