My brother in law has cancer all over only has

Patient

Q: My brother in law has cancer all over only has months. He said no more hospital or drs he has been dry heaving 4 hours now what can we do to stop it

Doctor

A:   Hi.
Thanks for your query.

Sorry to know the state in which your brother in law is.
The Dry heaves may not really have much of an answer as this must be due to the cancer spread all over the body.
you can try antitussive like Benedryl under the directives of your Doctor. Sometimes antidepressants do work.

I hope this helps your Brother in law.
