Pain, Haematemesis And Little Appetite

My uncle had undergone cholecystectomy 2 months ago in USA. He was also diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer Stage IIB during the procedure. After that he reused chemotherapy and came back to Pakistan. Now week ago he had severe pain in abdomen for which ultrasound was done and metastasis is found in the Liver. And as days pass he is getting weak, episodes of pain is also increasing both in frequency and duration for which pain killers (injection) are used. Today he is also complaining of Heametemesis. Now at this stage kindly comment what should we do? Is it treatable? What is the prognosis? Thank you

Must see a palliative care physician on urgent basis .
Hemetmesis at this stage multifactorial could be secondary to drugs ....

But patient is not taking any drugs.
Just normal saline and analgesics.

Analgesics are notorious to cause GI bleed and these are drugs by the way
