[MOL] Nausea and Vomitting



My Father-In-Law is in the advanced stages of prostate cancer and is
suffering severely from nausea and vomitting.  He is not undergoing any
form of chemotherapy as the cancer has spread to his bones.  He is
receiving some radiation to alleviate some of the discomfort caused by
the enlarged lymph nodes.  He has been given several anti-nauseant
drugs, none of which seem to have worked.  He has just recently been put
on Zofran which is better ( he is not vomitting as much) but he is still
nauseated.  Does anyone have any suggestions with respect to how to
handle this.  The doctors do not seem to be very proactive here.  We
were the ones to find out about Zofran, and it took some convincing to
get the doctors to at least try it.  Any suggestions would be greatly
appreciated.
Sincerely,
Rachelle
