Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

I am sorry about your husband.

why did he have a whipple surgery? did he have a cancer in his pancreas?

does he have nausea medications like zofran or compazine or compazine suppositories to use to help his nausea.

hiccups are often from something irritating the phrenic nerve innervating the diaphragm.

this could also be causing him to vomit.

did he have an MRI or CT scan of his abdomen?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
