Feb 21, 2018 · Melanoma of esophagus in Head & Neck Cancer

She has only had one treatment and the second one was postponed secondary to weight loss and severe fatigue. She is unable to eat mainly due to nausea which hasn’t been successfully treated.
She doesn’t have pain when swallowing but can feel the food going down due to the restriction.
Would really like some advice on nausea medication. Also she can’t swallow pills so must be in liquid form.

My is 89 years old. She has had one treatment of Keytruda IV. Her second treatment is in a few days. The doctor said it is stage four with just one lymph node involvement. Unfortunately she is being treated for c-diff with flagyl and is quite nauseated and fatigued. She had lost a lot of weight and doesn’t have an appetite.
I am wondering about any other adjuvant therapies. She is too old for surgery and will unlikely agree to chemo.
She was healthy before this diagnosis which is why the treatment was offered.
Melanoma of the esophagus is very rare and I would like to find others who have had treatment with immunotherapy.
