Zolfran is an excellent med, it has been arround for a long time, infact it was orriginally given to chemo patients for nausea! And for most people it works extremely well! I think it is good that that they want to wait on putting in the picc line, as I said it is not the most ideal way of getting nutrition into you, but it does work! I am glad to hear that, about your weight, losing 11 lb. is much better than losing 21 lb, but with your height you really do need to keep what weight you have, and not lose anymore, and hopefully you will start gaining some! If it is your Gallbadder, that is causing your problems that is an easy fix and they can easily remove it by doing laparocholecystotomy using a laparoscope and it is usually an out patient procedure. But let's hope that isn't necessary! I do hope you start feeling better soon!
Take care and Good luck to You
