Has lost her appetite almost completely and unable to eat much. Last night she had abdominal pain and in the night was sick bringing up brown vomit! should we be very worried.

Hello,

Welcome to Justanswer

I am sorry to know of the difficult phase your mother is passing through and can understand your anxiety.

Brown vomit is not a good indicator as it can mean blood de-natured due to the acid in stomach.

In other words she needs immediate medical attention for possible blood in vomit.

Hope this Helped :)
