Secondary cancer in bones

My wife has been diagnosed with this in her hips and spine region, she has lost her appetite and doesn't hardly eat because of sickness we think may be caused by tramadol and morphine which she takes for pain relief. The nurse has given her meds for sickness to help but its concerning that she has no appetite. 

Has anyone experienced this problem?

  • Welcome to the forum Easternwolf although I'm sorry to hear about your wife. It sounds like she's having a very difficult time at the moment but I do hope the meds she has been given will help with these feelings of sickness.

    As you can see on our website, feeling sick and loss of appetite are quite common, but I hope some of the tips we have for dealing with these diet problems will help.

    I'm sure some of our members who have had similar issues will stop by soon to share their thoughts and advice, but if you'd like to discuss this further with one of our cancer nurses, they are available on 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9a.m - 5p.m. They're very well informed and will do all that they can to help.

    Do be sure to discuss this with your wife's medical team as well as they will be able to give you further support and advice on how to manage this.

    Kind regards,
