mostly water

Dr. Lee :

Thanks.

Dr. Lee :

What you are seeing could be due to GI obstruction, pancreatitis, cancer, and kidney disease.

Dr. Lee :

All of these are urgent issues and it is best to take her to your local ER for exmaination, blood test, and x-rays.

Dr. Lee :

If that is not possible, then unforutnately, there is nothing you can do at home. We cannot give any medication by mouth as she will simply vomit it back up.

Dr. Lee :

She needs to get injectable medication instead.

Dr. Lee :

Which state do you live in? Is there any ER hospital open?
