My auntie has stomach cancer with metastatis is liver and spleen.The doctor has tried a stomach removal,but the main tumour is located in the ,,mouth'' of stomach,so was impossible for him to do it.
Now she cannot eat nor drink anylonger,because the tumor grew in meanwhile,so the food cannot enter the stomach,she is hospital and she can only get perfusion in her vein,to feed her so to say.The point is that ,I hear.they give her glucose in her vein,when I know glucose is one of the main food for the cancer cells.
I would like to know if there is any other supplement which she can get in her veins,without glucose.Or ,if it's anything you might suggest in such situation?
Any advice would be of great help!
