      Hi my name is Carm and I am an oncology/end of life nurse. It sounds like he has a bowel obstruction. If he is having bowel movements are they watery stools? He is third spacing fluid so he needs to keep those feetelevated and compression stockings. He also needs a diuretic to get rid of the excess fluid. These are not end of life signs. If it is coffee ground emesis or vomiting that looks like coffee grounds he might have a GI bleed somewhere. How is his color? Is he pale? Is his pulse fast or slow? I am going to send you my personal email. Contact me and I will send you my number in case you have any questions. Don't try to feed him anything but clear fluids. I'll send the email now, Carm RN.

      Sounds like you should get your uncle to the ER ASAP. Contact his oncologist as well. As Carm mention these may not be caused my his cancer but other medical conditions. No matter what he should be seen my a medical team now.
